I was on my roof, tied well to a tree on the other side of the house (so I thought), when the knot slipped. I didn’t fall very far until I grabbed the rope and slowly lowered myself down. But c’mon! I thought I had tied a good knot. Couldn’t use a trucker’s knot on this type of rinky-dink harness I made for myself. Should’ve used a better knot or stayed off the roof!
Do you know a few good knots? If you only had 4 or 5 you could tie almost anything you needed. One of the best knots I make is when I leave my earphone cords in my bag – it turns out different every time, but it’s always one ball of a knot that takes me 10 minutes to untie.
First, here’s a knot chart and secondly, watch the video below.
