Toggled Bend

The ultimate in ease of untying, the Toggled Bend incorporates an instantly removable toggle (pin) in its structure. Yank out the pin and the knot disappears.

To Tie a Toggled Bend:

Start with 2 loops, preferably Eye Splices. (If you use a Loop Knot, there is a danger that the knots will hand up when the toggle is released.) Thread 1 eye through the other.Toggled Bend 1
One eye is empty; pull a bight of the others eye’s standing part up through it and insert the toggle in this bight. Draw up.Toggled Bend 2
