Knots

Common knots for use with KAP include:

  • Bowline: Make a loop at the end of a line.
  • Chain Knot: Wrap up a line and keep it a compact manner for storage. This makes it easier and quicker to unwind a line.
  • Double Lark's Head Knot: Attach the towing ring for kites such as the Flow Form and others.
  • Fisherman's Knot: Connect two lines.
  • Lark's Head Hitch: Attach a line to a ring. For a more secure version, use a Double Lark's Head Knot.
  • Loop Knot: Widely used for the tow point of a bridle, or anywhere you need a loop in the middle of a line that will not slip.
  • Prusik knot: Also known as a Prussik Hitch, is a friction hitch knot that slides along a line until tension or weight is applied.
  • Trucker's Hitch: Is a self-binding knot commonly used for securing loads, but useful in tensioning bow lines, such as on a rokkaku.
