Self-tightening knots for clothesline, for bracelet, for fishing line, for spool
Usually a person has in the arsenal of several schemesnodes. They are enough to tie the laces, belt, connect the ends of the rope in case of a breakage. To make a knot for a tie, "to build" an elegant bow, to mount a fishing tackle, practice is already required. To take a step forward and learn how to knit self-tightening knots can everyone. It will take a piece of rope, a little time and desire. In addition, many of the simple schemes will be useful for domestic needs.
Self-tightening knots use not onlymountaineers and sailors. Some sources claim that there are about twenty such schemes. Knowing them all is not necessary even for a professional. But some universal combinations can come in handy for a common man in the street.
When resting on nature, the knot constrictor is reliablewill fix a hammock, "chat room" will help to equip the canopy from the rain. For the hostesses, there is a "burlak's sea loop", if it becomes necessary to pull the clothesline from sagging or arrange drying for the collected medicinal herbs. Walking the dog, sometimes it becomes necessary to leave the pet for a time reliably attached to the pedestal. A simple "cow knot" will be just the way. It easily knits and quickly allows you to release the leash.
Self-tightening knots for fishing line should be inarsenal of any fisherman. They will be useful also for reliable fastening of a boat. For those going to the mountain trek, knowledge of the nodes for the equipment of insurance is simply necessary.
The principle of operation of such schemes is laid in the verydefinition. When pulling one or both ends of the rope, the knot is tightened. And the stronger the effort, the stronger the connection will be. But it should be remembered that some self-tightening knots reliably "work" only at constant tension. If it is assumed that the force will change or be transferred in jerks, the connection may be weakened.
Self-tightening knots are knitted around anyreliable support. Especially well they are kept on a non-slip cylindrical base: a tree trunk, a stump, a branch, power transmission support and the like. The simplest pattern of binding involves only three movements. Form a semicircle, twisting the free end around the base.
Continuing the movement, it is turned on under the mainrope and pass into the now formed loop. In fact, it is the same knot as when tying shoelaces. But in the loop formed during its formation, there is a support. Now when pulling the main rope free end will be pressed against a hard surface, which will prevent the decoupling of the structure.
To increase the reliability of the above scheme,you can do a few simple manipulations. After tightening the knot, the free end is re-thrown around the support, rooted by the main rope and passed into the newly formed loop. Such a node is called "with a half-bayonet". You can make one, two or more reinsurance, if the length of the rope allows. Such self-tightening knots will be more perfect, they will be kept on a support even with a variable load.
In order not to be afraid of their accidentalunbound, you can use a "constrictor". From Latin so translated "boa constrictor". And these reptiles, as is known, when holding the victim form very strong rings. A constrictor can not be completely untied and it is necessary to cut a rope. However, if you do not apply excessive force, the knot will do well and tighten the neck of the bag, and with the fastening of the clothesline. In case of emergency, it is best for you to squeeze a damaged artery or vein when bleeding.
At the heart of more complex knots the basiccombination. So, based on the above scheme, you can make several more connection options, including self-tightening knots for fishing line. On the one hand, they become a little more difficult to perform, but on the other hand they make the basic combination universal. Depending on the situation, it is easy to move to other types of fasteners.
For example, the above simpleThe self-tightening knot can be made quickly decoupled. To do this, before tightening the loop, the free end of the rope is passed in the opposite direction (not completely), so that another loop is formed. For the resulting free "tail" if necessary, you can pull to effortlessly untie the fasteners. The scheme in this performance is called the "boat node". He simultaneously holds the boat well on the dock and allows you to quickly sail offshore, just pulling the edge of the rope.
Using as a basis a simple self-tighteningnode, you can easily go to the scheme "stranglehold." To do this, before tightening, the free end is wound around the rope, which forms a loop, three times. At uniform tightening the connection is reliably fixed due to repeated pressing force to the support. Untying such a knot without loosening the main rope is problematic.
A self-tightening knot with a loop canuseful in everyday life for shortening the sagging clothesline. With its help, you can temporarily "hide" (make inactive) a section of a cord with damaged fibers, which theoretically can tear under load. The advantage of the "burlack sea loop" node is its ability to tie in any part of a fixed rope that does not have free ends.
How to make a knot on a bracelet self-straining?
There can be several options. The simplest - if at one end of the bracelet is already a loop of rope or line. This is done because it is difficult to work with one hand without outside help. In this case, at the other end, a massive decorative knot is knit.
It must be of such size that it can fitpass through the hole in the loop. The knot is knit with the expectation that when it is "fastened" the strap will need to be slightly pulled. After passing through the eye, the force will be weakened, but the loop will not be able to jump off on its own.
To self-tighten the knot for the braceletaccidentally could not untie, the easiest way to use the scheme described above. The free end is passed through the eyelet, turns in the opposite direction, is wound under the main ribbon and is passed into the formed loop. You can use for these purposes and the schemes shown in the photos above.
Fishing: how to make a self-tightening knot
Strangely enough, to fix the end of the line(cord) on the coil, in principle, you can use the same simple scheme, especially if in addition to strengthen it with two or more "half-bayonets", and even in addition to overlay a layer of adhesive plaster. However, fishermen usually use a different scheme for this, with a tight loop.
For the convenience of such fastening the spool from the coilremove. At the end of the fishing line, a loop is sewn in any convenient way. This is best done by the "eight", but this is not a matter of principle. After this, at a distance (15-20 cm) from the nodule formed, the main line is captured, doubled and traced into the eyelet.
Formed in this new loopstretch to a sufficient distance so that the diameter of the circle allows it to be put on the spool. Self-tightening knots on the coil with a sealing loop, on the one hand, will keep the line from slipping, and on the other hand - allow it to be removed and changed if necessary, without cutting the joints. If the loop still slips, then when you put it on the spool it was placed on the wrong side, and it should be turned 180 degrees.
