CMC Fundamentals: Learn Your Knots - Figure 8 Bend
In this video, CMC shows how to tie a Figure 8 Bend. The Figure 8 Bend is used to tie two ropes together. It is a self-locking knot and the large bends make it easier to untie after the rope has been loaded than other knots. Our recent testing of this knot showed a much lower efficiency than earlier tests.
