Hitch with two ends
« on: May 13, 2013, 09:35:49 AM »
clove hitch ,  and  hitch to a pole with  two  sling ends. 
Actually with bights , for the rope is very long.



The stone is heavy about 100Kg
, so it's hard to put rope under it.

Just put a clove hitch on two corners of the stone,
And it works with no problem .

And then, need to tie a loop with the two ends of the clove hitch,

And insert a pole into the loop to carry the stone by two men on shoulder.

What's the simplest way to tie the loop?



Take a picture of workers working, but I don't catch their complicated method.

Easy to tie
Easy to untie
Self dressing

In forum or books there're many hitches tied with one work end.
So just treat the two ends as if they are one end?

WOW, that actually (1) held around the block,
without slipping off(!?),
and (2) just two men carried it, as you describe?!
(which implies !~100kg per man!!)

I certainly wouldn't trust the rope to hold the block
in such an orientation, and I'm not about to hoist
100kg --back has enough troubles w/o that.

Thanks for the pics (knots in the wild)!

Sure, no slipping at all. They always do it this way.
