How to Tie Camping Knots : How to Tie a Slip Knot & a Slippery Hitch Knot


Hi name is Dan and I’m here with Expert Village
today to show you how to tie the slippery hitch. It is a very basic knot but have a
merit of applications. I’ll show you one application to tie a number of tent poles or a down twigs
together for you camp fire. So the basic slippery hitch you’ll make a loop and then feed another
loop through it. For all the intent purposes it is half of the knot you tie when tie your
shoe lace. So if this one end of your shoe lace you can pull it and it disappear and
that is why it is called the slippery hitch. Any knot you can pull out is called the slipped
knot. So now I can show you how you can apply it to tyeing a number of pole together. Make
a loop in one end of your line. A simple overhand loop would do. Gather you items. Pass you line around and
under them, go through the loop that you just created, and know tie your slippery hitch.
So make you loop, and you next loop you go up and through them. Now you tied this together
and if your where to untie them quickly simply pull on the end. However if you want to be
able to carry them by the tail end of you line tie simply as before. When you have your
slippery loop, feed your tail in through it, and now you have the slippery hitch that is
made fast.

  1. I don't find this very helpful. Too many references to other knots. Not visually clear. Not very well explained. This guy is an expert at knots, but teaching is not a strong suit.
