This is an incredible knot site. Not only do you get to see animated versions of how to tie the knots, but you also get tips on rope safety. In this newly revised version, even those of you with slower connections can check out the animations.
You’ll find specific knots for Boating, Climbing, Fishing, Scouting and even Search and Rescue. In each section, there will be a center area surrounded by different knots. If you mouse over the different knots, a description will come up in the center area. You can then choose a knot and you will be taken to its page.
Once you’ve chosen a knot, you will find an animation of how to tie that knot. The animation can be slowed down for easier viewing and you can even flip the direction of the knot so that you can see it tied from a different angle. Beneath the animation are numbers that you can mouse over to see the step by step animation of the knot tying. Also, below that, you can learn more about the knot and what it is comprised of.
Rope Care – Here you will learn how to best care for your ropes, depending on what you’re using them for. Learn different ways to care for your ropes as well. Some require a needle and thread, while others simply teach you how to best coil your ropes!
If you’d much rather just browse the knots, scroll down past the main block of text on the home page and you’ll find the complete knot listing. Click the link of the knot you want to view and you’re all set.
