Mooring Hitch1. Make a turn around a post and then form a loop with the free end exiting the loop on the inside (leave longer free end than illustrated).
2. Grasp the standing line and pull a section through your loop.
3. Grasp a section of the free end (but not the very end) and pull part way through the new loop.
4. Tighten the knot by pulling down on the standing line. Release the knot by pulling the free end.
