Constrictor Knot A useful knot to tie up loose materials or the ends of bags. Simple to tie, it grips itself and will not work loose. Also known as the Miller’s Knot this knot is useful for securing the end of a sack or bundles of items. The knot stays tied and grips itself so well that it is often impossible to untie.
