I did a search and sifted through "knots" and after about 15 minutes I gave up so hopefully we can contribute to this post and make a sticky for the newbies like me...

I now realize you need to know more than a square knot when out there hammocking and backpacking. I would hate to be woken up by my hammock hitting the ground due to a knot failure...

Post the type of knot, it's use and related instructions.

I found this one to be useful for lashing my bamboo tripod together... It's a clove hitch, lashing, frapping and tying off.


Thanks everyone
