#katknots The ➰ Snuggle Hitch is super-charged Clove Hitch that is stronger and more secure. Use it for attaching a line to a spar or rope. It works for both lengthways amd right-angled pulls. Easy to release and only seconds longer to tie than the Clove.

Wrap the line around and bring the working end across diagonally from right to left over the standing part.
Lead the working end back over & lead it up behind, over diagonally from left to right. Then tuck up through the first loop.

If you like these kind of knots, we’d recommend that you take a look at our article on how to tie a rolling hitch as this is one of the key knots for sailors. Or how you tie a cleat hitch – another essential knot.
