Applications: The Pile Hitch is a single fixed-loop knot that is easily tied and used for dropping over posts or bollards to act as a mooring hitch. The Pile Hitch offers a little more friction and is easily tied with a bight of line.

How to tie:

  • Wrap the loop or bight, taking it beneath the standing parts.
  • Place the loop over the post and pull it snug.
