Tip. Use this knot if you have a guy rope with no adjuster. Create a loop
on the end of a second rope which is slipped over the peg. Use a rolling
hitch to attach the second rope to the guyline. Alternatively, take the
guyline around the peg and tie the Rolling hitch back onto the standing
part of the guyline, above the peg, thus forming an adjustable loop. This
is known as the Tautline Hitch in America.
Tip. Use this knot when constructing camp gadgets such as a suspended table.
A Rolling hitch in each suspension rope will allow easy adjustment and
a level table!
Tip. When adjustments are complete, lock the rolling hitch into place by
using a stop knot such as a Figure of Eight in the
first rope, below the Rolling hitch, to stop it slipping.
