Running simple knot
The easiest way to tie a loop in the middle of the cable, and at the end. Make a ring out of the rope and draw a loop into it, as shown:
This is the easiest and most reliable way to make a loop. Take a rope and wrap one end of it, folding a small piece in half. Now hold in a fist the place where the end of the rope is attached to the other (long) part. Grasp the fold with your right hand and wrap a double rope around it, stretching the fold into a ring. Thus, you will have a knotted knot of a double rope, from one end of which there will be a loop, and from the other - a small tail and a long part of the rope.
The minus of such a loop is that its size cannot be increased or decreased - it will be as you tied it up.In addition, if the knot is strongly tightened, then it will be problematic to untie it.
If you need a loop, the size of which can be adjusted or tightened, then use the movable loop.
To make it initially, take the rope in your left hand so that its long end is at the bottom, and at the top is a 20-30 cm long segment. Now, hold the end of this small segment with your right hand and wrap the rope around it so that the end is not at the top ( in the ring), and below. Now you need to thread the end into the resulting small loop at the base, where you just wrapped the end. To the end of the rope did not go, wrap it again around the main rope and tie it.
Pulling the long end of the rope, you can adjust the size of the loop or tighten it. If you pull to the end, then such a loop will quickly and easily be untied.
The disadvantage of this loop is that it is not strong. Therefore, there is a more complicated, but at the same time more robust way of how to make a loop correctly.
Take the rope in your left hand so that the long (non-working) end of the rope is on top. Now make the working ends of the two zigzag moves, as in the figure. As a result, you should have two unfixed loops: one on top, the other on the bottom.The working end of the rope should again be at the bottom. Now wrap the working end of the rope as tightly as possible in a spiral around the resulting three upwards. When a very small tip remains, thread it into the upper loop. Now pull the bottom to tighten the resulting knot.
There are cases when you need to tie a loop in the middle of a rope or cable. In this case, the riding loop is perfect for you. In the middle of the cable make a loop and twist it twice, but not much. Then flip it over the cable and pass into the loop formed between the twists:
The video is the best of the instructors. Thanks to him, you can see with your own eyes the step by step instructions for tying various loops. For example, a good tutorial on tying knots and loops is the video below.
