Trucker’s Hitch, Beats Brute Force 3:1
A trucker’s hitch or power hitch, is crucial for tying down long spans of rope, such as washing lines or guy-lines. It’ll even hold stuff together while glue dries. It secures your equipment on the back of your truck, ‘bakkie’ or trailer. Properly executed, this knot has a mechanical advantage—the force you gain by using a tool or, in this case, a knot—approaching 3:1.
Step 1. Create a slipknot by forming a loop in the rope and pushing a bend in the rope, through the loop. This serves as an upper pulley.
Step 2. Pass the running end of the line around a fixed point and bring the line up through the back of the loop in the slipknot and out. Grasp this running line and get ready for the superhero part: cinching the line taut and then tying some half-hitches.
Step 3. Pull down to tighten the hitch. When you have enough tension to whiten knuckles, hold the running line tight and use your other hand to pinch the U it forms as it passes through the slipknot loop. Finish with two half-hitches. Add a third one, tied with a quick-release loop, to store spare line while adding some security.
