Tucked Sheet Bend
How to tie a Tucked Sheet Bend. Also known as the ONE-WAY SHEET BEND, this knot can be useful when joining ropes that might be hauled over an object or edge. With this method of tying, the working ends point the same way as the rope being hauled and are thus less likely to snag on an obstruction.
A very similar knot is the One-way knot, which presents just a tad slimmer profile, useful when the knot must slide through pulleys or other hardware.
