Anchor Bend Knot
The Anchor Bend is a knot used for attaching a rope to a ring or similar termination point.  Its name originates from when “Bend” was understood to mean “tie to” or “attach to”, and not limited to knots that typically join ropes together. While the knot can become jammed in some modern materials, it is usually easily untied after moderate loads.

 

 

Using the Anchor Bend Knot

The Anchor Bend knot can be made more resistant to jamming by taking an extra turn around the object – this will make for a 1-diameter longer span of the end to reach around the standing part to be tucked (although in a case of tying to a small shackle or link of a chain, this might not be possible). The Anchor Bend is the approved knot for attaching anchors (or more generally anchor chains) to warps. The Anchor Bend Knot is very similar to a round turn and two half hitches except that the first half hitch is passed under the turn. In many everyday uses, the finishing half-hitch need not be made; alternatively, one might seek surer security by tying off the end with a Strangle knot to the standing part.  And that’s it, a perfect Anchor Bend Knot!
