regarded as the lion loop of the
knot. But as the parts of an iron
hook cannot be gripped tighter by

no object in so making the hitch,
and it is therefore made in the
form of a bull loop round one part

arrangement forms a most effective
blind fastening, the strain in this
case being upwards and the jam
against the other part of the fitting
corresponding to the hook.
