Two Half Hitches is one of the most basic and useful knots. It is often used to tie a rope or cord onto an object. One really handy thing is that this knot can be tied while the line is already under tension.

  • Two Half Hitches is considered to be a “general purpose hitch.” Meaning that it is useful in almost any situation that you want to tie a rope to a fixed object.
  • It has been used since antiquity to tie boats to fixed objects so that they cannot drift away.
  • In camping it is very useful when building guy lines and many other chores around camp.
  • Secure your dog’s leash or your horse’s reins to a fence post.
  • Great for backing up another knot such as the Bowline when you want a little extra security.

Double Slipped Two Half Hitches On TikTok.com

When a knot is “slipped”, it is tied in a way that is quick to untie. This unique version of the Two Half Hitches knot from @knot.tok is “double slipped”, which gives it a little extra security while still requiring only a flick of the wrist to untie.


A double slipped half hitch is secure and strong, but use a long slip loop if it is supporting critical loads. #fyp #knottying #knotok #knots #boatswainsmate #teaching #climbing #knottok #knotsandcues #knotty #arborist #hitch #knot
