How To Pack Your Stunt Kite Away

Lark's Head Knot

One of the most useful and easiest ways of attaching your flying lines to either a single line. stunt or power kite. Explained here by Close Encounters Kites

How To Sleeve Your Flying Lines

Most performance stunt kites will come with a set for quality low stretch flying lines. You will see that they have a sleeveing sheath over the ends. The reason for this is that if you were to just tie a knot in the flying line itself it will end up weakening the line, so it is protected by the polyester sheath. This video shows how to re sleeve your flying lines, this may be because they have stretched slightly or have broken. (If you do not have sleeving on the lines of the kite you have just bought, don't worry it is a type of line that does not need to be sleeved) Sleeving kits are available Here

The Right Knot

If you need to make a new knot in the end of your flying line take a look at this tutorial from Close Encounters Kites.
