Animated Knots – How to tie a Figure 8 knot

Watch more with these video collections:

This video demonstrates how to tie a Figure 8 knot, one of the Basic 8 knots that lead to a huge catalog of useful tying skills for boatingclimbing, scouting, search and rescue, and more.

The Figure 8 is a stopper knot — it prevents the end of a rope sliding through a pulley or it can be used to add security to another knot. It is relatively easy to undo, is preferred to the Overhand Knot, but is not as secure as the Double Overhand.

These videos are from AnimatedKnots.com, where they believe that it’s “Better to know a knot and not need it, than need a knot and not know it.” And don’t forget, safety first!
