Camel Hitch

 

The Camel Hitch makes an excellent knot choice when the load applied to the hitch might shift from one direction to another. It works well on cylindrical and flat objects and can be used to attach a smaller line to a larger one.

To Tie a Camel Hitch:

With the working end, make two full turns around the bar, rail, or other attachment point.

Take the working end across the front of the standing part, around the attachment point, and down through itself twice. Work the completed hitch tight by pulling on the working end and standing part simultaneously.
