Loop Knots


Types of Rope Loop Knots

Loops can be classified into various heads according to their structure. The double loop knots are stronger than the single loops and are frequently used in making footholds and handholds while climbing. They are usually made with a bight of rope instead of a single rope. The terminal knots are used for attaching fishing gear and by cowboys for capturing cattle. The midline loops can be used whenever you need a loop in the middle of a line. The sliding loops have noose-like action as they can be tightened as desired. If you don’t want that, you can opt for the fixed loops.
