How To Tie Your Kite To A Carabiner (or Sand Anchor) (Video)

Posted on October 02 2019

We get lots of "how to" questions and today we would like to share a quick video on how to tie off your kite to a carabiner. The first thing you do which is not shown in the video but can be seen in it and in the photo is to simply wrap your kite line around the carabiner 3 or 4 times, and then follow the steps in the video to tie it off with a good tension knot. 

REMEMBER: Do NOT wrap your line around the side of the carabiner where the spring opening is (see photo), as the pull from the kite on the kite line may force the carabiner open. 

Pro Tip: Use a carabiner with a screw clasp not a push spring - these screw clasp carabiners can be found at most hardware stores. 

 Enjoy the video below.
