This is my variation on a slip knot that is derived from the principle of a Prusik knot. It can be used on tent guy cords and tied very fast. It has the grip to withstand considerable tension. It can be used for any tie down where the knot has to be adjustable and not exert too much constant tension, such as would occur with a Truckers hitch. I use this knot for tent tie downs, safety cords for carrying a kayak on a car, temporary clothes lines, and any line that need adjustable tension or re-tensioning. Yet must be self locking when high tension is applied.
