How To: Tie a strong water knot

Tie a strong water knot

Webbing is not only used in sports like rock climbing and caving, but it also comes in handy in camping and hiking. This video shows you how to tie two webbing ends together to make a loop that will not come off. A square knot does not work for webbing as it will slip through, therefore a water knot is used. Take 4 inches (10 cm) from one marked end and tie an overhand loop. Ensure that the webbing is not twisted. Slip the other end in the knot and trace the second end around the overhand knot so that you have a single overhand loop. Then just sinch it tight. Make sure that you leave at least 2 inches (5 cm) of webbing tail at each end so that the knot does not come loose. There you have it - a water knot for webbing.
