3.30 Buntline Hitch (Figure 3:19)
The Buntline Hitch (sometimes incorrectly called the Becket Hitch) is a very strong and compact knot which can be used to secure the rope end to the becket of a block when reeving a tackle.
The rope is taken through the becket, then back around the standing part in a Half Hitch. The second half hitch is formed inside the first to form a Clove Hitch, and when the knot is dressed, it is strong, compact and safe.
