Another knot question

I am trying out this bowline trick from Stupid Guide Tricks. I have the Prusik tied on the bowline, but I am not sure what knot he is using to attach the carabiner. Any one know what not that is? Or have a suggestion for another not that will work using the two rope ends?

I think he is just clipping the carabiner to the dring, not a knot.

I dont know if I understand which knot you are referring too.... but the prussik is tied with a doublefisherman and looped directly into the biner., and that shoudl be it. As a side note, if you want to tie the end of a rope off to a biner use a figure 8

The knot on the other end of the Prusik that is attached to a carabiner on the D-ring.

Yeah, to me that looks like the double fisherman knot used to tie the two ends of a single peice of rope together to make the prussik loop. . The caribiner just gets clipped into the prussik loop.

That is a double fishermans used to create the prusik. It is not tied to the carabiner, it just looks like it since he positioned the knot up near the carabiner, thus making it easier to adjust the prusik.

I think your right. I just figured it couldn't be that simple. Thanks.

theoretically, once you have clipped the prusik to the caribiner (assuming you've tied the double fishermans knot and the piece of cord you are using for the prusik is now a loop), you could un-clip the bowline from the boat, as the prusik should take all the load. Of course it doesn't hurt to have a backup.

I suppose you could, but why would you want to?
