Bowline With a Backup or Safety Tie


In this how to video I’ll show you how to properly tie the bowline knot with a backup or safety tie. We will take a close up look at the not and some advantages of using it.

At the end of the video I tie the Yosemite Finish. Please use extreme caution using this as a tie off. I have seen this version of the bowline become a free running single figure eight during a safety check of another rescuer. In that case the safety tie had been passed through the inside loop of the bowline. USE CAUTION!
