If you’re looking for the best knot to tie down the guy lines on your tent – look no further. The Boy Scouts have been teaching this knot in their handbook since 1910. We call it the Ultimate Camping Knot, but the Boy Scouts call it the Taught Line Hitch. In this tip, I use a Bernzmoatic 3-in-1 Micro Torch to tidy up the end of the rope before tying. This quick and easy step allows you to keep your rope clean, and prevent fraying.
This knot allows you to adjust the tension up and down, without needing to untie and retie the knot. It’s a great way to secure guy lines while camping, and maintain a taught line for securing your tent.
