Munter Hitch

(Also known as an Italian Hitch, the Munter Friction Hitch and the sliding ring hitch)

This is a very useful tool on a tower site. The hitch provides friction in one direction and easy flow in the other direction.

2. Make a loop with the rope.

3. Bring one running end under and around the other.

4. Snap a carabineer around the two-legged running end side.

5. Tighten the hitch.
