Handcuff Knot

Handcuff Knot

Aplications : A fireman's chair knot can be started with this knot, which can also hobble a live animal, sling a carcass or render an escapologist helpless.

Method : Interweave two mirror-image loops under and over each other (1-2). Alternatively, pull straight through (3-4) into the simpler six crossing-point knot called the Tom fool's knot. Some feel this is inferior to the handcuff knot, with its eight crossing points, but there is evidence to show one is more or less as good as the other.

History : So-called handcuff knots may have originated, as an alternative to a picket line, to prevent grazing animals straying from overnight camps.
