Thumb

(Overhand Knot)
Thumb Knot


This is the simplist knot of all. It is commonly use to temporarily "stop" the end of a fraying rope.

  • The overhand knot is commonly tied in a bight formed at the end of a rope, forming the Overhand Loop.
  • Tip. The Thumbknot jams easily so it is far better to use a Figure of Eight knot to stop the end of a fraying rope.
