Transom Knot

 

The Transom Knot is similar to a Constrictor Knot. It is used to fix together crossed pieces of rigid material and has a wide range of camping and outdoor uses, for example, to fasten tent poles together and kit to luggage racks. If used as a permanent knot, the ends may be trimmed off for neatness.

To Tie a Transom Knot:

Pass the working end behind the upright spar and back across the rope.
