Wagoner's Hitch

 

The Wagoner's Hitch is a leveraged hitch very similar to the Trucker's Hitch. It needs tension on it to stay secure, and it comes undone with just a shake.

To Tie a Wagoner's Hitch:

Make a crossing turn, then grab a bight in the running end just below it.

Pull the bight of the running end through the crossing turn. This forms a lower loop that the running end will pass through after it goes around an anchor point.

Pass the running end around the anchor and back up through the lower loop.
