The Pile Hitch is a very neat and practical hitch for securing objects to a post. It is ideal as a temporary fixing. The big advantage of this hitch is that it is very easy to tie and release quickly.
To Tie a Pile Hitch:
|Wrap a looped working end around a post close to its top.|
|Pass the working end around the post under the standing part and hook it over the top of the post.|
|Pull firmly on the standing part to tighten the knot.|
|To release the rope, simply slide the knot off the end of the post.|
