Tautline Hitch61 viewsUsed 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.

Ring Knot49 viewsThis is one of the best bends a beginner could tie. It is very easy to remember, easy to tie and quite handsome. The ring knot is a bit hard to untie and is a bit bulky, but otherwise a very respectable knot. To tie: Follow the diagrams, which will create two overhand knots interlocked.RATKINSONJan 26, 2008

Sailor's Hitch38 viewsDraws up without working to form a strong, secure hitch that will not jam. It may be used as a way to tie a smaller rope to a very large rope. (The smaller rope should pull left when tied as shown here.) Push a bight through the final tuck to form a Slipped Sailor's Hitch.RATKINSONJan 26, 2008

Hangman's Knot38 viewsThis knot needs no definition. It is made with eight or nine turns and not thirteen as is often superstitiously suggested. Apart from its obvious function, it is a useful knot for the end of a lanyard.RATKINSONJan 26, 2008

Ladderlashing Knot36 viewsLadder lashing allows for a quick and secure method for constructing a ladder or for constructing a decking with evenly space decking pieces. This form of lashing has several advantages over the traditional floor lashing. Less material is required because unlike floor lashing a space can be left between each piece of the decking. Also, each rung is securely lashed in place by several loops of rope in much the same way as a square lashing; with the traditional floor lashing only a single loop of the rope holds each end of the decking in place, therefore if one piece loosens, the entire deck loosens. The ladder lashing has two forms; left and right, each is a mirror image of the other. RATKINSONJan 26, 2008
Ladderlashing Knot34 viewsSTART: The ladder lashing is started by using a clove hitch stopped with two half hitches to secure a rope to the top end of each rail.
STEP 1: Lay an overhand loop over each side rail so that the running end of each loop is to the outside.
STEP 2: Place a rung across the rails so that the standing part of each overhand loop is over the end of the rung and the running part of each overhand loop is under the rung.
STEP 3: Pull the running part side of each overhand loop behind and to the outside of each rail.
STEP 4: Then pull the loop over the end of the rung.
