The Man harness is a knot with a loop on the bight for non-critical purposes. This knot is used when multiple people are to pull a load. Typically one end of the rope is tied to a load, and one man harness knot per puller will be tied along its length. Each loop is then pulled by a different person.
How to tie
- Lay the rope flat
- Make a loop in the rope with the running end going beneath the standing part.
- Pull the running end down so that it crosses over the loop (like a marlinspike hitch).
- Pull the bottom of the loop through the gap between the top of the loop and the running end.
