Use: The Anchor Bend is a knot used for attaching a rope to a ring or similar termination. The round turn and tight application help keep the rope from chafing.

How to tie:


  1. Make two turns around a hitch.
  2. Pass the running end around the standing end and beneath the two turns.
  3. Finish with a half hitch on the standing end.
