3 Lean-To Ridge Line Knots Using SurvivorCord

Evenk, Fisherman, and Trucker Knots

Using Titan SurvivorCord, the Survivalist Prepper demonstrates 3 lean-to ridge line knots:

  1. the Evenk (Siberian hitch) knot
  2. the fisherman’s knot, and
  3. the trucker’s hitch.

The Evenk knot is easy to tie, even with cold weather gloves on. And the slipped knot is quickly released with a simple pull of the cord’s working end.

3 Lean-To Ridge Line Knots Using SurvivorCord

The fisherman’s knot (also known as the angler’s knot, English knot, halibut knot, or waterman’s knot) is used for joining two lines, and can be easily tied with cold, wet hands.

[Video] Using The Scaffold Hitch For An Improvised Seat

How To Tie A Scaffold Hitch

The so-called scaffold hitch is used to create a raised hanging plank support or an improvised seat. You tie-off this hitch with a bowline knot backed-up with a double fisherman’s knot.

Scaffold Hitch, Bowline Hitch & Double Fisherman Knots

Part of their knot-of-the-week series, ITS Tactical uses a small wood piece to demo the hitch. A finished hanging seat set-up is shown at the end of the video.

One caution: they use paracord for this video tutorial. Don’t. Use other cordage when tying a scaffold hitch. You don’t want the paracord to slip off your weight-bearing board.

[Video] How To Tie The Prusik Hitch Knot

A Friction Hitch Autoblock Knot

The Prusik is a useful rope-grap for rescue missions and as a backup during rappelling. The “Prusik loop” is made by cinching tight a double fisherman’s knot on a single, smaller diameter cord.

Tying The Prusik Hitch Knot

This loop is triple-wrapped (at most) around the larger static (rappel) cord: this is the actual Prusik knot or friction hitch.


[Video] How To Tie A Constrictor Knot

Constrictor Knot And The Slipped Variation

More secure than the clove hitch, the constrictor is a binding knot that may be difficult to untie once tightened: the knot tightens the more it’s pulled.

Tying Constrictor Knots

It’s a fast, easy knot: working end around the object, crossing back over that line creating a figure eight shape on object, then passing the working end over the standing part of line, then under the first two wraps.

See? ( Sorry. I know the knot, and it’s hard for me to see. Just watch the video.)
