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).
