The Clovehitch can be used for fixing a loop of rope to an anchor point. A way to remember it might be, "Make two identical loops, and put the back one on top of the front one."
- Bishop guide SP Parker has an article about Use and Abuse of the Clove Hitch, which describes how you have to be careful how the knot is seated on your carabiner. If you do it wrong, there's unnecessary torque on the carabiner which can make the carabiner fail below its rated value.
