Description

The Anchor Bend is a knot used for attaching a rope to a ring or similar termination.

Use

It is the accepted knot for attaching anchors (or more usually anchor chains) to warps.

Releasing

While the knot can become jammed in some modern materials, it is usually easily untied after moderate loads.
It can be made more resistant to jamming by taking an extra turn around the object.

Security

The free end should be secured with seizing to the standing line for a permanent, secure knot.

Other names

Anchor bend, Fisherman’s Bend.

Tying

1. Make two turns around the object, leaving turns slack.
2. Pass the tail over the standing end and under the original slack and tie a half hitch around the standing line.
3. Continue around the standing end to tie the second half hitch and complete the knot.
