    Double Fisherman's Sling….look at this knot on Grog. My new fav knot…will do the same as this, with many different uses, water bottle, sleeping bag, so on and so forth.

    A quick suggestion. Use a stone to wrap the tarp around and secure with the guy rope.

    I think… A Canadian jam knot. Would have been sufficient.

    Hangman's knot on one end and a Mooring knot on the other…. That will allow slide up and back tensioning to any tie down point.

    I use loops for prusik knots. I make tieouts with a penny and just the loop with a larkshead knot. Works great. Great video thanks.

    Did you bet a friend on who could make the longest video of a single knot and get the most views? Well played sir. Well played. I bet your buddy’s video is only two minutes long and has less than 1,000 views.

    By the end of the video I decided to tie this knot using a 30 foot piece of climbing rope and see if I could rappel from my fifth floor balcony with the noose end securely tied around my neck and the bowline tied firmly to a folding chair on the deck. I figured I’d post a comment first so that I could waste just a small portion of your life due to the amount of time you have wasted of mine. Since it only takes a minute or two to read this comment, and if for some reason my effort at rapelling ends catastophically, I am going to haunt you for a period of time. I intend to only haunt you for 15 minutes and 57 seconds minus the amount of time it takes you to read this comment. However I am not wearing a watch and I’m unsure if ghosts can even tell time.

    Other than the length of the video it is a great idea and I would have loved to have had the time in my life to try it out camping sometime. Good lord, where does the time go??

    A tight line hitch or a grip hitch works just as well and is much easier to tie. Otherwise I like your idea very much.

    Maybe just use a slipknot instead of that long to tie noose.

    Thanks for the video. Taking my 6 year old out camping and hiking this spring and summer. We will make this together to get ready for our trips.

    I liked your idea of having some small transition ropes. I used something similar in my box of ropes for tying down loads. Might I suggest a little addition to you set up. If you add an "Irish Button" to the tail of the "hangman's noose", now you have a self-contained unit so you don't have to look for or make a button. I can't take credit for the idea, I saw it in book on knots. We have to share the knowledge. Thanks

    Hi, why not a Noose knot-Figure 8 knot combo (which I prefer), or a Noose knot-Double half hitch combo; the Noose knot-bowline might not be as sturdy, lol… btw I do have those clips you mentioned but I use them to hold up the Tarps as drapes for privacy when I use my pop-up Canopy. Great prep work! I plan on making a set of 6!

    I carry a bunch of marbles in my tarping possibles bag, smooth, light & strong, great slingshot ammo too. I keep several pre-tied loops with it all too. Not as fancy a knot as these, but simple, quick and less cord needed.

    Good concept, but why not a slip knot with a stopper knot, like a figure 8 or a basic overhand knot to keep the tag end from pulling through, rather than a noose? A much easier and faster knot to tie, takes less practice to master, and uses less cordage to tie. If it’s easier to do, a person is more likely to do it. Such is human nature unfortunately. I’m not trying to troll, just genuinely curious if there is an advantage over a basic slip knot.

    Why not a taut line hitch for this?

    Hi. Just subscribed! I've been wanting to make a porch for my Quechua 2 man tent and really don't want to use the grommets or add grommets to my new tarp. Am thinking of using buttons using small round pebbles or these commercial ones. BUT! If i leave them permanently attached, how much stress, if any do they apply on the tarp? Will the tarp last better? Thanks in advance.

    Awesome Idea, I am just getting into backpacking I will put this in my problem solving note pad I will carry with me. I'm getting to old to remember these tricks just when I need them.

    Wow, New about using buttons, knew those knots, but would never have put the concept together or I would have done so years ago. I'm on board as a new Sub from this, Great Job!
