8. Gripping Update

Wrap rope around a handrail for a textured nonslip surface. Start by running a few inches down the rail, then bind it under the loops, pulling tightly as you go. Nylon rope comes in a variety of colors, both vibrant and subdued.

Double-braid ¼-inch rope, about $45 for 100 feet; knotandrope.com
