Tautline Hitch
Used as a hitch, which may be drawn up away from what it is looped around to tighten a line.
Since it will only slide one way, the Taut-line hitch is often used on tent ropes. The taut-line hitch will hold firmly on a smooth pole such as a scout stave. Place rope end around pole, make a turn below it, then bring rope up across the standing part around the pole and tuck through.
