Welcome to Slide and Grip Knots
This page shows a selection of the commonly used Slide and Grip Knots. The ability of these knots to grip securely is heavily dependent on the rope. When rope was mostly tarred hemp, they all gripped. Those days are over, and many of these knots (all?) will fail with modern slippery ropes such as Spectra®, and Dyneema® (HMPE). If you are depending on one of these knots, check the rope and the knot carefully.
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.
