Knot of capstan or cock
It is held by tension, the more you tighten, the more solid it is. It is used to moor a boat to a stake, ring or bollard.
Simple chair knot
This node does not run. As it has the advantage of not tightening, even under a very strong traction as for example on, it is frequently used by browsers.
Two towers and two half-keys
The easiest technique in the emergency. The bollard or quay ring is wrapped around the rope. The tension is exerted on the dead turns, while the two half-keys block the knot.
Simple listening node
Used to join two ropes. Easy to do, this is one of the best known for joining two strings.
Double listening node
Used to join two ropes of different diameters. Easy to do, this is one of the best known for joining two strings.
Knot in eight
It is the stop node par excellence. It has a good volume, is done quickly and unravels without difficulty, even very tight.
To fix a rope to a cleat, we first perform a dead turn, then an "8", and finally a half key reversed.
