Quick Clove Hitch

This method of tying the clove hitch is really fast and easy. However, it involves assembling the knot first, and then sliding it over the poles, so its not applicable in all situations. Like its not practical to use it to end lashings. Perhaps one of the greatest advantages of this method is its ability to put a clove hitch in the middle of a long rope. Its excellent for putting the many clove hitches required on the center rope of a monkey bridge. I've also found it useful to create 2 guide lines on a pole from a single long rope, like the 2 guide lines that hold up a pole for a volleyball net.
