Hi Asa Samuel, four photos below to illustrate knot as requested, the first two photos are how i like to tie knot, the second two photos illustrate the difference between the two tying methods, examine the the last turn and you will find the end of rope where it is double-backed to create a loop for slip knot for easy untying is passed completely '''OVER BOTH ENDS''' of loop to peg, in bottom/last photo you will see i have tied the knot as shown in diagram provided by Sainty's link and the last turn-round creating the slip knot goes '''BETWEEN THE TWO ENDS''' creating loop for peg. Both methods work but i prefer tying it myself as in the ''''over''' method as i think it holds better. Hope this helps.Can't quite understand that, Joonsy. Any chance of a diagram?
No, a waggoner's hitch is tied totally different, the knot illustated with photos is easily adjusted by sliding knot up or down length of string which cannot be done with the waggoner's hich which is tensioned by hauling on the free loose end, this link shows the waggoner's hitch, a completely different knot http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trucker%27s_hitch and this link shows how to tie the waggoner's hitch which as you see it's totally different http://www.bullsbrookscouts.com/truckie****ch.htmlThat's a waggon hitch isn't it, the the knot used when tying loads onto waggons with rope ?
Adjustable guy lines, I have used prussik loops, they are good for ascending ropes when potholing I have found, so they good for the guy line situation and look so tidy.
Prussik knots can slide easily when there is no tension on the knot, but grab very well when there is tension on the knot.
I think you mean Evenk, or Siberian hitch. It's basically a figure of eight slipped at each end with a ring in one of the slip loops (which stops it slipping.what about the evik (spelling) really quick and easy to use..think i`ve seen it on you-tube
