This is a good knot. It stays tight very easily. I don't think that spott is right.

All you must do to keep this knot tight is use a half roll of duck tape on it. With duck tape who need knots.

Submitted by: Andrew
Unfortunately, duct tape cannot replace most of the useful knots. If you pull a bight through instead of the end you have the Slipped Round Hitch

why not just use a clove hitch?

Submitted by: Amir
I feel that this is an interesting knot to have in your repetroire, but functionally a clove hitch would do much better

A good knot to fix the line of the fender on the reeling

THis may not be a very good hitch for tying up your boat. The motion and change of pulling direction and tension may cause it to work itself loose. Thus making for a very nasty situation in deed.
