Good one TKT, but it would be useful to know a one handed knot that tied two things together tightly, a ladder to a car roof rack let's say. Do you know of a slip knot that can be tied one-handed? I can tie a bowline one-handed but that's not the tightest of fixings. The only other way round it that I can think of is tie a loop at one end of the line and measure around the two items then tie anoher loop on the other end so the line is just a bit short to go round then finish by joining the two loops with a cable-tie.
