How to Tie a Knot That Doesn't Slip

Save

Basic knot knowledge is useful for a variety of tasks. From rescue, climbing, lashing and household chores, a base of knot-knowledge gets employed in many situations. One basic skill to master is knowing a knot that does not slip under load. The "noose knot" is a good knot to use when tying off to objects. This knot sounds ominous but is practical and useful as it does not slip under load and weight.

  • Twist the working end of the rope (the end) into a double loop. Make a bight on the working end (a loop in the rope) and push it under the twist.

  • Pull the bight through the twist. The result is a pretzel looking knot with an enclosed bight extending out of the pretzel.

  • Slide the bight-loop over the object you wish to attach it to and pull back on the rope to secure a firm knot connection. Test the knot by putting it under the appropriate weight or pressure you will need it for.

Tips & Warnings

  • Use a square knot to tie the excess rope from the end of the noose knot to the main line of the rope.
