Sheepshank
  • The Sheepshank is a shortening knot, which enables a rope to be shortened non-destructively.
  • The knot is only really secure under tension, it will fall apart when slack. (See tip below.)

Sheepshank

  • Tip: Never cut ropes to shorten them! Always use a shortening knot such as the Sheepshank, or coil the excess.
  • Tip: Use up to five half hitches each end of the Sheepshank to make the knot more secure, and for fine tuning the shortening.
