An ordinary person uses the simplest knots when working with a rope. As a consequence, after tightening, it is easier to cut than to untie. We offer 10 useful knots for all occasions that are easy to dissolve.
1. Decoupling knot
At the end, the rope folds in half. Then you need to circle it around the anchor, and insert a double long edge into the loop.
The knot is pulled up to fix the loop, after which the short edge folded in half is inserted into it. After that, pulling on the long end, you can finally tighten it.
This creates a strong knot that can be instantly untied by pulling on the short edge. This can be useful when setting up tents, tents, etc.
2. A knot for pulling out posts and pegs with a lever
The rope folds in half. Its loop is looped around a pole or hammered stake that needs to be pulled out of the ground. The folded ends are passed through it 2 times, after which it is tightened.
One end of the rope folds in half. On the resulting loop, you need to make a full turn with the second end. Then it extends into its own ring formed from the turnover.
A lever is inserted into the resulting eyes, pulling on which you can pull out a post or stake. With this method of tying, the rope will not be pulled into a tight knot, and then it can be untied.
3. Fast splicing of ropes
The edges of the ropes are folded in half. One loop is inserted into the other. The short edge from the inner rope is passed through its own ring.
The short edge of the outer rope is looped into the same loop as the first end. Then the knot is tightened. In the future, it will not be as difficult to untie it as with normal binding.
4. Sliding untie knot
The end of the rope is thrown over a crossbar or support. A loop is folded at the long end.
One turn is made on it with a short edge. Then it must be folded in half from the side of the beginning of the loop, and inserted into it.
Pulling on the long edge of the rope will tighten the knot. To untie it, you need to pull out the short end. Moreover, if you support the long edge and drag by the knot, then it can be moved.
5. Splicing ropes
The edges of the rope are folded crosswise. One of them wraps around the second along the side of the long edge. Then the same is done with the second rope.
After that, the short edges just need to be tied in a simple knot. By pulling on the long ends, you can finally tighten the ropes, completing the splicing. Under load, such a knot will not tighten much, so it can be untied.
6. Towing decoupling knot
This knot will help when there is a lot of tension, such as when towing. The rope is launched into the eyelet or crossbar from the bottom. Then the short edge is outlined behind the long one, and is introduced again, but already from above.
Then the edges are brought together and pulled up, but not completely. The short rope is folded in half and looped into the first 2 rings. Pulling on the base edge will tighten the knot. After use, it is untied by pulling out the short one.
7. Slip knot
The rope is thrown over the anchor. On the long edge, a ring is folded, and the short end is wound into it.
The short edge should be cut around the long one and inserted into the ring from the exit side. Then, by pulling on the main half of the rope, the knot can be tightened. Having tied this way, you can move the sling along the anchor.
8. Clamp assembly
If you need to tighten the hose on the fitting or mixer, then you need to wrap a thin cord around it. Then one edge is looped behind the hose under the second tail of the lace.
After that, it is inserted between the crosshairs and the hose. Then the edges are tightened. The more you pull them up, the more securely the clamp holds.
9. Keg assembly
This knot can be used to hang a flower pot beautifully. To do this, the edges of the rope must be spliced as neatly as possible to obtain a ring. It is laid out on the floor or table in the form of a figure eight with a small ring. A pot is placed on its crosshair.
The large ring must be taken in the center and dragged towards the small one, then passed into it. As a result, you get 3 loops that need to be leveled, the central one is made the largest.
The center loop slides over the pot and the smaller loops. It needs to be brought under them. Then it remains to grab it through the small loops and pull it up. As a result, the rope will grip the pot and you will get 2 handles.
10. Sliding knot with braking
This unit can be used for lowering heavy loads. This requires a towing eyelet. One end of the rope is tied to the anchor. The second is then wrapped around the towing eyelet.
The free edge must be circled behind the rope going to the anchor and inserted into the eyelet or inserted into it with her finger. When the free end of the rope is taut, the eye does not move. If you loosen it, then it will slide down. This can be used to lower loads from a height. By pulling the rope at the bottom, you can slow down the descent.
