Gallows Knot

The Gallows Knot is based on the multi-fold overhand knot. This type of noose is opened by pulling on the knot and generally does not become stronger after the second turn around the noose. This useful knot is used for search and rescue, mountaineering, climbing, boating, horse and livestock, camping, and scouting.
