Hitches: There are at least 30 ways to attach a line to a fixed object. Some are strong while others are secure. What’s the difference? The answer is in the app!

Bends: If you think a sheet bend is all you need to join two lines then think again! Sailors invented the carrick bend, the rigger’s bend and others for very good reasons.

Loops: The bowline may still be the King of Knots, but its tenure is under threat. Find out which are the new loops for new ropes.

Knot Scores
All the knots in this app are awarded a five-part knot score, with their strength, security, ease of tying, ease of untying, and usefulness given a grade from 1–5.
