How To Tie on with Figure of Eight
- Make a loop in the rope.
- Take the end (a) behind and down through the loop.
- Adjust the tail of rope:- Knot on heart, end at fingertip, is approximately the required amount. Although this will depend on the length of your arm and the thickness of the rope.
- Thread the tail end through the harness, then follow the rope back through the eight.
- Tie a stopper knot in the remaining tail so the figure of eight doesn’t work loose( See How to tie a bowline for details). Make sure this sits right next to the eight knot.
