    The knot on an ENO

    Can anyone tell me what type of knot is tied around the carabiner on the ENO? Sorry just not that great with knots.

    Heck, I can't remember. I was too concerned about getting it off of there.

    well better yet what's a good binding knot to hold my weight(205lbs) I just figured if ENO uses that knot on their carabiner it must be a decent one.

    I was also too busy cutting mine off to figure out what it was. If you are looking to redo it or replicate it, there are other knots that are easier to do.

    Sorry...too busy cutting mine off too in order to add the whoopie slings. I didn't want to trust my weight on their knot or rope.

    Replicate it, if there are better ones that are easier I am all game. Throw em at me. I just need the name of the knot, I have the knot app on my phone just wanted opinions on what a good knot would be to hold my weight.

    I simply made a continuous loop out of and ran it through with a larkshead. I'll try to attach a pic of one I did for my daughter. This one is with paracord since she is only 3 and I made it her size. I'm hoping the photo attaches. (we'll see)

    ENO uses a slip knot around the carabiner, and I think they use a double fisherman's knot for the other end of the loop. (I took mine off a while ago, so I am going from memory.)

    The day my ENO DN was delivered, the first thing that I did was remove the heavy biner and cruddy looking rope in anticipation of getting the amsteel for whoopies. I used some zing it in the sewn channel to form a large ball, then wrapped the whoopie twice around the material just below that with a larks head (I think). I hung with it this weekend for the first time, and no fears of it holding you at a puny 205 I am 320. No worries, just do it. That amsteel is some amazing stuff.
