  • Half hitch

    The half hitch is a simple knot. If tied by itself, it slips very easily and cannot hold anything. However, it occurs as a component in many more complicated knots.

    A half hitch can be used together with a timber hitch to drag a log or other large object. The timber hitch connects the end of the rope to one end of the log, and the half hitch binds the standing part of the rope to the opposite end.
