A Knot That Helps Move Poles and Masts,The Timber Hitch

The Timber Hitch is a very old knot that is documented back to the 1600’s. This is a very useful knot for dragging antenna masts and poles. It is very easy to tie and untie. Usually this knot is used with a half hitch in front of it but some applications don’t need it.

First loop you rope around the pole.
Bring the rope back through the loop.
Bring the rope through the loop 3 times.
Dress and tighten the knot. Technically the half hitch is done.
When dragging poles or logs, add a half hitch in front of the Timber Hitch.
