Sample text

Be sure you run the first turn around the sack over the forefinger and the rest of the turns under it. For easy removal, complete the knot with a quick-release (slippery) loop. Finish off with another half hitch high on the post (same way you complete a timber hitch) to keep the post vertical when pulling. Make the loop from a length of parachute cord, completed with a fisherman’s knot. The solution is the sheepshank—an ancient knot used by sailors to shorten rope that’s too long for the job at hand.

However, it is less versatile and much inferior to the more powerful power cinch (trucker’s knot) explained on page 35. It’s best to complete the timber hitch with a half hitch near the hauling end to keep a long log from twisting.

When absolute security is needed, finish the knot with one or two half hitches, as illustrated in Figure 14c. The “sixpoint” diamond suspension provides security even when the load shifts. When the hitch is complete, pull the rope to tighten the hitch, then tie it off where you started it with two half hitches. Note: When tying to a pack animal, the hitch usually originates and ends at the ring in the girth strap, and the “diamond” in the center appears much larger than illustrated. When used in this manner, it is called the “packer’s” or “parcel” knot.
