Introduction: How to Tie a Figure Eight Knot
Welcome to my channel How to Knot and in this video, I will be showing you how to tie a figure eight knot. Beyond a general purpose knot, this can also be used in climbing, camping, and sailing. This is a type of stopper knot used to prevent ropes from running out of hardware devices. The figure eight knot can jam under strain, but can also be undone much easier than compared to an overhand knot.
Be sure to check out the descriptive video at the end to help for further understand.
