   The "Buntllne Extinguisher" :)  or "Constrictor noose" presented in this thread is identical to the hitch pdc 39 ( = proximal - distal - clove, which also has been related to the Buntline hitch ), shown by Charles Warner and Pieter van de Grient at Knotting Matters 61, p. 44 ( Sept. 1998 ). The authors describe it as a "secure but rather clumsy hitch".
   The "Serpent noose" is identical to the hitch pdn 19 ( = proximal - distal - non-alternate ), shown at the same article, at p. 43. The authors describe it as  a "satisfactory jamming noose".

(*) The c of the clove should better be read as the c of the constrictor, in this case - but, in any case, the Constrictor itself is not but a Clove with an additional twist of the Tail Ends underneath the riding turn...

This is not a knot.
