Snuggle Hitch

Snuggle Hitch

Applications : Useful for attaching a line to a spar or rope, the snuggle hitch is stronger than either the clove or rolling hitches . It may be used with a right-angled or a lengthwise pull.

Method : For a lengthwise pull, ensure that the two adjacent wrapping turns are on the same side of the standing part as the load (1-3). Once the load is released, the knot may be untied by either pulling or prising loose the part arrowed (4).The working end can then be withdrawn.

History : The snuggle hitch was devised by Owen K. Nuttall of West Yorkshire, England, and was first published in Knotting Matters in January 1987.
