How to tie the figure eight on a bight

The figure eight on a bight is simple and secure. It can be inserted into a carabiner, or over a post. When using the figure eight knot to wrap around a tree or boulder, is better to follow it through after putting the loop around the object.

The tail end must always be checked to be a minimum of six inches long and for load bearing it should be tighten or snug throughout.

Make sure to always inspect your figure eight follow through knot to ensure the two stands are beside each other and follow each part of the knot.
