KOTM: Figure 8 on the Bight
Knot of the Month - Figure 8 on the bight
- The figure 8 on a Bight forms a permanent loop in the rope.
- It is a very strong knot and can be tied anywhere on the rope (not just the end)
- Drawback: It cannot be tied around anything so you must clip into it with a carabineer or tie another knot/webbing into it.
- At the end of a rope as an anchor point.
- Anywhere within the rope for a pig rig.
- In the middle of a haul line to pull against
