Welcome to Houshold Knots

Selection

These animated knots are primarily for use around the home, the yard, the garden, and on the road.

Requests

The most requests we received were for animations on how to tie neckties - which explains their prominence in this section. In January 2012 we finally added the Pratt (Shelby) method for tying a necktie. Simple to tie, it produces a pleasingly symmetrical knot.

Emphasis

The emphasis for household knots is on reliability combined with the ability to tie and untie each knot fairly easily. Around the home there are few critical loads and, therefore, not the same concern about safety which applies in Climbing and Search and Rescue. An exception is the Child's Swing. However, the height is only a few feet - and damage from any fall correspondingly limited.

Make a selection from the images above or go to the Options Page.

Disclaimer: Any activity that involves ropes is potentially hazardous. Lives may be at risk - possibly your own. Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: the choice of materials; the age, size, and condition of ropes; and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed. No responsibility is accepted for incidents arising from the use of this material.
