The Buntline Hitch
Knots are used frequently in our hobby. From securing loads to securing antennas, a knowledge of some basic knots is very valuable. We are considering a General Meeting session later in the season to see some knots and their application demonstrated. In the meantime, we’ll feature some common knots for you to practice. This month the Buntline Hitch.
Use this knot to fasten items such as snaps and rings to rope or cord. It forms a small, net and very reliable knot. Not to be used however for tying a climbing rope.
