Description

Secure shoelace knot is a variation of the two loop shoelace knot. It is one of several more secure
alternatives to the common shoelace knot. Secure shoelace knot is made by looping the top part of the
knot twice instead of once, which results in a finished knot of almost identical appearance but with
the laces wrapped twice around the middle.
It is relatively easy to tie and easy to untie.
Good for slippery laces.

Use

Used for tying shoelaces in sports, mountain climbing, boating and other activities where secure
yet easily untied knot is needed.

Releasing

To release just pull by the free ends just like ordinary shoelace knot.

Security

Way more secure than the standard shoelace knot.
