Halter, Slip, or Running Knot

Categories: Xi Useful Knots And How To Tie Them

The halter or slip knot is often convenient, but should never be used

around the neck of an animal, for if either end is pulled it will slip

and tighten, thereby strangling the creature.

First form a bight, then with one end of the rope make a single tie

around the other rope (Fig. 68).
