12 `How-To-Tie-Knots` Gifs [Pic]



Reef knot



Easiest self tightening knot to learn. Can be used to secure non critical loads.



Figure 8 knot



Used to stop those pesky ropes slipping away



Bowline



Can be used to secure loads, although, it can also be used to lift people in emergencies



Clove hitch (using half hitches)



Often used in theater to adjust heights of lights, etc. This is not a knot to be used on its own!



Diagonal lashing



Can be used to tie lengths together at a variety of angles. Useful in a survival situation.



Square lashing



Used to tie lengths, which are at right angles, together. Useful in a survival situation.



Tripod lashing



Used to tie 3 lengths together to create a tripod. Useful in a survival situation. Works well to make a tripod to shoot from.



Hasty Harness



I cannot stress the importance of using webbing (straps) and not rope when doing this. When you don't have a proper harness and need to get down quickly. Only to be used in dire circumstances.



Truckers hitch



Lovely hitch to secure loads. Although difficult to learn, it's very useful.



Rope swing



For every great dad out there! Easy to set up for hours of fun!



Remember to coil unattached rope



Keeps your rope tied up neatly; can be untied and used quickly if need be



Bowtie - Because I-A-Bers are classy bastards



For all those lovely functions we all attend.

Palomar knot to tie hooks to line. Use it and you'll never lose another fish.

I can tie a proper noose. I figure that's the only one I really need to know, you know?
