Knots And Rope Skills To Survive

Knots may come in handy for a variety of survival scenarios, such as tying snares, securing shelters, lowering equipment or yourself down a cliff face.

Many different applications would call for different types of knots. Ideally you would have an arsenal of knots, from hitches to bends to loops, in your repertoire. But if you learn only one, learn the bowline knot.

One of the most useful knots you can know. The Bowline forms a secure loop that will not jam and is easy to tie and untie. The Bowline is most commonly used for forming a fixed loop, large or small at the end of a line. Tried and tested over centuries, this knot is reliable, strong and stable. Even after severe tension is applied it is easy to untie. However, because it does untie so easily it should not be trusted in a life or death situation such as mountain climbing. It is said to retain 60% of the strength of the line in which it is tied.

Bowline Knot Tying Instructions

    (1) Lay the rope across your left hand with the free end hanging down. Form a small loop in the line in your hand.

   (2)  Bring the free end up to and pass through the eye from the under side (the rabbit comes out of the hole).

    (3) Wrap the line around the standing line and back down through the loop (around the tree and back down the hole)

    (4) Tighten the knot by pulling on free end while holding standing line
