The bottle sling (or jug sling ) is a knot which can be used to create a handle for a glass or ceramic container with a slippery narrow neck, as long as the neck widens slightly near the top. [ 1 ] While classed with binding knots , such as the reef knot and constrictor knot , the bottle sling is able to perform a function for which most other binding knots are unsuited. The bottle sling's specific form allows it to grip a cylinder, assuming it has even a slight flare or collar, and lift it along its axis when the knot is loaded by all four strands. [ 1 ] With appropriate size cord, most wine bottles can be reliably suspended with this knot. [ edit ] History The bottle sling was described in detail by the Greek physician Heraklas in his first century monograph on surgical knots and slings. It was included under the name diplous karkhesios brokhos ("double jug-sling noose").

Sin embargo, cuando la unión es mayor, se puede hacer servir soldándola sobre el tubo en el que previamente se ha enrollado un pedazo de alambre de cobre. Por ejemplo: para ajustar una tubería de 1/2" a un codo de 3/4", se estaña primero el extremo del tubo y se suelda una punta del alambre en el punto 1.
