[Caption: E. B. xiv.] [Caption: (Young's Cord Holder)]
To make: see figures. The arrows show the
direction of the strain.
Uses: to suspend a rope from a hook by
jamming the running end between the hook
& the standing part. A common blind fas-
tening. ^with the cleat shown in fig 2, which is used
also in small sailing boats.*
[Replaces: To set up top-gallant-rigging &c. (E.13xxi.541.)]
Characteristics. The security of this make-
shift hitch is increased if the hook is
small enough to lie snugly round it. The
principle is the same as that of the
granny weaver, though the form differs. If the
hitch were laid over both parts of the a
hook, thus:- a granny weaver of
the form given on p 64.col 1.2.3
