    I love it. I use an old external frame to lash dry bags to when kayak camping sometimes and this will be perfect! Thanks for sharing!

    I find the most appealing part of this knot is its simplicity, along with its apparent high function.
    I think you are right about the 'stopper-knot' function at the end of the rope. I never thought of using something simple that wouldn't get super-tight under load. This looks like a perfect place for a MSH (trail-stick).

    Thanks for the idea and improvement.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Hang On!

    I tried a small bead in the first overhand knot, and it made it easier to open it back up, if needed. Really, just about anything that would keep it from closing too tight on itself. Just remember to leave a bit of line out the end of whatever you do, so you have something to grab hold of when you go to release the knot.

    Nice knot

    It could be a heavily used knot for me. It has so many good uses while camping. Thanx Rug. I always hated lashing and this cuts the time down a whole lot.

    That goes for me too beats standing there thinking "now is it right over left or left over" you get the gist...

    Great knot - sure love the simplicity of this - much easier that a two and a half hitch, or taut line hitch. My kids love using my extra rope to tie over hand knots on anything they can find.

    Thanks for sharing

    I was taught that knot by Mors Kochanski on one of his courses here in the UK a couple of years back, he called it a Jam knot, (no country of origin), and he was of the opinion it was the best knot ever. During his demonstration he actually crushed a couple of pine planks using it with cord you get for Venetian blinds, pretty impressive.

    That's a really cool knot. I plan to teach it to my Boy Scouts.

    I also find it amazing that there are three pages of comments posted here about how cool the knot is. Amazing is good, you know.
