How to tie a munter mule

The Munter Mule is used to secure a munter. It is also used to escape or lock a loaded line in place with the excess rope.

Take a bite of rope from the excess, make a small loop, pass a bite of rope from the same line through the small loop, and finish securing by wrapping that excess around the load line with an over hand knot (or half fisherman’s knot).

Use a larger locking carabiner to allow the hitch to be inverted thru the carabiner when pulled. Make sure to tie off the end of the munter mule snug with an overhand or half fisherman’s knot to avoid it from slipping or coming undone when loaded.
