Ordinarily, when you want to put a rope to work, you have
to tie a knot in it. And if you know a few basic knots you
can make your rope work much more efficiently.
Knots are usedto join two ropes together,
or to shorten one rope - and to 'tie up', tow, haul, hoist and support objects.
Most of the knots shown here are fairly simple to master - a little practice and
you'll be surprised what you can do with a rope.
Because often, several quite different knots might be used for
the same job - it's important to know the general purpose of a
knot before you decide on the best to use. For instance, if you
wish to secure a mooring line to a post with a very secure
knot that you could leave in the end of your rope and use over,
and over again - you might use a bowline. But if you wanted
to moor it with a temporary but secure fastening that would
untie quickly - you could use any one of a number of hitches.
For that reason we've tried to classify very broadly under their
general purposes, some of the knots, bends and hitches most
commonly used. We've included also a few simple splices because
splicing is the strongest and most permanent method of
joining two ropes together, and of making rope loops and slings.
