How-To: Tying a Slip Knot

An overhand knot is a common, easy-to-tie knot that can be further strengthened into a slip knot with just a couple quick steps. By simply inserting one end of a rope back through the overhand knot, you can create a secure loop that can only be loosened one way. Slip knots are simple to make and are extremely useful for climbing and other activities that require strength and security.
