Rolling Hitch A very secure and easy to tie method of fastening a rope to a post. The knot holds firmly in the direction of standing line. The Rolling Hitch is much more secure than the similar clove hitch when tying a rope to a pole or other object.

Rolling Hitch

1. 1. Wrap the end of a line around an object. Repeat, crossing over the standing line a second time.

2. Wrap a third time around the object but wrap above the standing line so as to not cross over it.

3. Pass the free end under the last wrap and pull tight.
