“Better” Survival Knot Series – Midshipman’s Hitch

If you’ve ever set up a tent, rain fly, or tarp, you’ve probably used a taut line hitch (or similar plastic device) that keeps the line taut but adjustable.  However, the taut line hitch is NOT the best hitch for securing rain tarps because it is prone to slipping.  Get rid of the taut line hitch and replace it with the Midshipman’s Hitch.
