Water


Uses:


  • Safely secures webbing, belts and straps together, particularly for joining slings when climbing and caving.

Advantages:


  • Can be used to join ropes, for which the knot is very secure.

Disadvantages:


  • Almost impossible to untie if wet and tight.
  • When tying, the webbing should not be twisted; their surfaces should be kept flat against one another for maximum friction.
