Timber Hitch

  • Used to attach a rope to a log, or where security is not an issue. This knot tightens under strain, but comes undone easily when slack is introduced.
  • Wrap the rope around the log, then pass the running end around the standing part of the rope. Finally twist the running end around itself three or four times.
