Description

The Overhand loop is a simple knot which forms a fixed loop in a rope.

Use

The knot can be used for attaching clips, hooks, other rope, etc., but has the disadvantage
that it is likely to jam tight when the rope has been pulled and the knot may need to be
cut off.

Releasing

Jamming

Security

The overhand knot is very secure, to the point of jamming badly.

Other names

Overhand loop, Loop knot.

Tying

Made by tying an Overhand knot in the bight, it can be tied anywhere along a rope (does not need any working end).
