>>> The Marchard Knot

A nifty article giving the history and uses of the Marchard knot. A simple way of looping a bit of rope around another rope (or a hose or the like), and using a carabiner to attach it.

Considered one of the simplest auto-jamming knots, it can be used in belaying, abseiling (rappelling), or just hanging a work light.

Knowing knots and their uses is always handy.
