Prusik Knot[edit]

This knot is commonly used in bushcraft to create an adjustable attach point, the Prusik Knot is handy since it can be adjusted unless it is under load. When you put load on the knot it sticks to where it is.

Practical use case it to attach the tarp in a A-frame Tarp Shelter to the Prusik Knot in order to be able to stretch the tarp and remove any slack from it.
