Bowline Knot

The Bowline is a very popular and a secure loop knot with many uses. It normally does not slip and can be untied wet or even if tension has been applied. Although the bowline may become rather difficult to untie if under heavy tension.

On a Bowline that is going to be in place for the long haul; safety suggests that the working end should end up inside the loop. To help prevent slippage you may also wish to add a stop knot and extend the inside line.
