Overhand Knot PROCEDUCE 1. Form an overhand loop and insert one end of the rope into the loop. Then tighten up the knot Uses To stop the end of the rope from fraying A series of overhand knots from Quipi, which can slow down the pace of a man going down a slope with the aid of a long rope
PROCEDURE 1.Hold each end of the knots with both hands 2.Form an overhand knot or a loop by placing the right end over the left – the right end entering from the outer part of the knot going towards the person 3.Form a bight, this time, left over right Uses To close the knot in lashing when making gadgets Tie shoe string, gifts, ribbons, bolts, etc Bind packages, firewood, etc. together To close triangular bandage in first aid Square Knot (Reef Knot)
Sheepshank (Dog Shank) Procedure 1. Divide a long rope equally into three loops. To make the loop, follow the procedure for the clover hitch but add one more loop to make a total of three loops. 1. Pull apart the loop at the center passing over the rope near the center 2. When the center loop and the hanging ends are properly pulled, the result is a shortened rope Uses Best used to shorten ropes Dogshank is a sheepshank with the eyes seized by passing the rope ends. The dogshank prevents sheepshank from slipping
Two Half Hitches Procedure 1. Loop rope over a post 2. Make a clove hitch around the standing part of the rope Uses To tie the clothesline To tie a rope to a tree or pole To join two unequal ropes The joint is stronger with the use of half hitch
Sheet bend Procedure 1. Make a bight in the thicker rope. Bring up the short end of the thinner rope up through this bight. 2. Pass the thinner rope under the bight crossing the short and first, then behind the bight and up and over the standing part, across the front of the bight and under its own standing part.Tighten by pulling on the standing part. Uses To join two rope ends, especially when they are not same size.
Clove Hitch Method A Procedure 1. Hold each end with both hands. 2. Form a loop with the right end towards you and the left end away from you. 3. Let the two loops meet at the center. Insert finger between the loops. An X is formed when the two ends meet at the center. Method B Procedure 1. Take one end of the rope in your right hand. With the left, hold rest of rope across front of pole. 2. Pass end of rope around in back of pole. 3. Bring it around to front of pole. Cross it over long part making an X. Hold X with left thumb and forefinger.
Method B Procedure 4. Pass rope to the right again, wrapping it around pole below first turn. 5. Push rope end under X, going from left to right so that it comes out between the two turns around pole. 6. Pull short end to the right, long end to the left. 7. Untie it by pushing both ends towards the center. Uses To start lashing when making gadgets. Tie the clothesline. Attach a rope to a tree, pole hands or fingers. Bind objects together. Tie rope on objects – the rope to be used for mountain climbing, to secure against a tree in rescuing a drowning person.
Bowline Procedure 1. Start by forming an overhand loop on the standing part which is large enough for its purposes. 2. Take a free end up through the eye, around the standing part, and right back where it came from. Uses To save a drowning person To tie animals
