How to Tie a Bowline on a Bight Knot

RopeKnotLibraryBanner PROKNOT


This rope knot forms a bowline (secure loop) in the middle of a line. Useful when you want a non-slip loop but a free end is not handy or to provide two loops in the end of a line. This knot can be used as a sling or as a seat or bosum’s chair in an emergency rescue situation. The two loops can be worked to different sizes if needed.

You can find this knot on the PRO-KNOT Outdoor Knot Tying Instruction Cards, available at Bass Pro Shops website or at your local Bass Pro Shops store.
