The Flemish eye splice is fabricated by opening or un-laying the wire rope body into two parts. The first part will have three strands while the other will have the remaining three strands and the rope core. The wire rope is un-laid far enough back to allow the eye to be formed by looping both parts in opposite directions. Then the rope strands are rolled back around the body and secured by a metal sleeve that is slipped over the ends of the splice and pressed (swaged) to create the wire rope sling.
