Paracord Knots

The Barrel Hitch and “barrel sling,” named for their use in hoisting cargo aboard ships, are a simple yet effective way to suspend an object. The barrel is laid on its side, both sides of the strop are spread out and passed underneath, the ends of the strop are raised together, one end is tucked through the other and hooked to an eyehook.
[blogslidersmall][content]The Cleat Hitch is used to secure a rope to a cleat. It is a simple hitch, yet seems to boggle the minds of many visitors trying to secure their lines to your cleat. It is the best way to tie a boat to a dock and is a quick and easy method of tying a rope to a cleat on a dock or boat that is also easy to untie. Learn the Cleat Hitch if you own a boat or even if you don’t. It is amazing how many boat owners do not know this easy and essential boating knot. This knot ties and unties quickly and neatly. You will impress everyone if you tie this knot when handed a rope at the dock![/content][/blogslidersmall]
The Carrick Bend, also known as the Carric Bend, is a knot used for joining two lines. It is particularly appropriate for very heavy rope or cable that is too large and stiff to easily be formed into other common bends.
[blogslidersmall][content]The Butterfly Loop, also known as lineman’s loop, butterfly knot, alpine butterfly knot and lineman’s rider, is a knot used to form a fixed loop in the middle of a rope. Tied in the bight, it can be made in a rope without access to either of the ends; this is a distinct advantage when working with long climbing ropes.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Buntline Hitch (also called a Buntline Knot) is a knot used for attaching a rope to an object. It is formed by passing the working end around an object, then making a clove hitch around the rope’s standing part, taking care that the turns of the clove hitch progress towards the object rather than away from it. Secure and easily tied, the buntline hitch will jam when subjected to extreme loads. Given the knot’s propensity to jam, it is often made in slipped form.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Blake’s Hitch is a friction hitch commonly used by arborists and tree climbers as an ascending knot. Unlike other common climbing hitches, which often use a loop of cord, the Blake’s hitch is formed using the end of a rope.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Better Bow Knot is similar to a regular shoelace knot that you would normally use to tie your shoelaces.  Just use this enhanced version to tie your shoelaces (or bikini) and never worry about it coming undone. Unties with a simple tug on the free end. Just wrap twice around the first loop instead of once to prevent it from coming unravelled.[/blogslidersmall][/content]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Backup Knot (also called a stopper knot) is used primarily for security by climbers, and is a secondary knot designed to prevent their primary knot from coming untied.  This knot is usually tied about 12 – 18 inches after the primary knot.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Bachmann Hitch (sometimes misspelled ‘Bachman’) is a friction hitch. It is useful when the friction hitch needs to be reset quickly/often or made to be self-tending as in crevasse and self-rescue.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
[blogslidersmall][content]The Bowline on a Bight is a knot which makes a pair of fixed-size loops in the middle of a rope. Its advantage is that it is reasonably easy to untie after being exposed to a strain. This knot can replace the figure-eight knot when tying into a climbing harness. However, it is critical to use a strong backup knot with plenty of tail beyond the knot.[/content][/blogslidersmall]

[blogslidersmall][content]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.[/content][/blogslidersmall]
