    Bowline Knot

    A simple yet efficient knot that's easy to tie and untie. It's one downside is that it can slip or come a bit loose when it's not attached to a load.

    Slip Knot

    When you pull on the tail, the knot comes undone! Simple as that. It's great for when you need ropes that can hold weigh, but can also quickly be untied.
