Trucker’s Hitch1. Tie one end of rope to fixed object such as car bumper. About mid way on the rope tie a slippery half hitch to form a loop in the middle of the line. Be sure the loop part is formed with the slack part of the rope or it will tighten down on itself under pressure.
2. Make a wrap around another fixed point opposite the tie-in point and feed free end through the loop.
3. Using the loop as a pulley, pull down with the free end as tight as you can and secure the knot with two half hitches around one or both lines.
