Default How to Make A Loop At A Lines End (Surgeon's Loop)

Hello,

Tying a proper loop at the end of your line is important. There are three easy steps and you will have it mastered.

Surgeon's Loop

1. Double end of line to form a loop and tie overhand knot at base of double line.

2. Leave loop open in knot and bring doubled line through one more.

3.Hold standing end and tag end and pull loop to tighten knot.



Best Regards

RAK
