How To: Tie a Great Hangman's Noose (Or Hangman's Knot)

Tie a Great Hangman's Noose (Or Hangman's Knot)

The hangman's noose is infamous for its use in hanging prisoners during executions. It was supposedly invented in Britain but eventually spread throughout the world, going beyond the prisons and even into our own homes. But the hangman's knot isn't all doom and gloom. There are plenty of practical (and non-lethal) applications for the hangman's knot, like a fishing or boating knot. Everyone should know this roped knot; this tutorial will show you the knot-tying process. Just remember, to be an actual "hangman's noose," it needs to have nine to thirteen coils in the rope.

"Just remember, to be a true "hangman's noose" it needs to have nine to thirteen coils in the rope."

Lah me. . . another urban myth rears its head. There is no special number of wraps to be considered a "hangman's knot." The number of wrap could be as few as three, if the conditions called for it. The wraps depended on the weight of the person, the type of ropes as well as the condition of the rope.

well we all know what i'm gonna use this for tonight ur a real life saver THANK UUU
