The ring hitch, also known as the cow hitch, lanyard hitch, lark's head, bale sling hitch, and probaby goes by a few other monikers, can sometimes easily loosen up or get slack when not under tension with some types of 'slippery' cordage, like nylon paracord, so the 'Reinforced Ring Hitch' offers a little more security with a better grip. There are many various hitches that can be used, but this is an easy one to learn, tie, and remember. This hitch is found in 'The Ashley Book of Knots' as #1863.
