Default The Spider Hitch

The Spider Hitch



The spider hitch is second only to the Bimini Twist but is much faster and easier to tie. The drawback is that it needs to be perfectly tightened or it may cut itself. When pulling the knot closed, both loops need to be the same size. If they are not you can adjust the loop by either pulling the tag or standing line until they are both the same size and then you can close the knot. Keeping the knot wet is a must.
