Rolling Hitch

  • The Rolling hitch is used to attach one rope to a second, in such a manner that the first rope can be easily slid along the second.
  • When tension is applied and the ropes form a straight line, the rolling hitch will lock onto the first rope. When the tension is released, the hitch can be loosened and slid along the first rope to a new location.
  • The tension must be applied on the side of the knot with the extra turn.
