The "Slip-Knot"


Correctly named a "slipped sheet bend", this is the knot you will WANT to use to secure yourself if you are planning to remove your pelican perch from the tree. When done correctly, you will be able to secure the Perch, then be able to dismount it by simply pulling on the loose end of the cord. Please refer to our Set-Up videos on our HOMEPAGE.
Tying the Knot
 

Knot Tying Method


 

Select your supporting tree. Pass the rope around the tree and insert the loose end through the previously tied loop on the opposite end.
 
Pull the loose end until all slack is removed from the rope encircling the tree, and “pinch” rope where it passes through the loop and hold.
 
Grab a hold of the free end of the rope, a few inches away from your ‘Pinch” and the end. Take that midway point and pass it behind the pre-tied loop you are pinching.
 

Take that loop and pass it into the loop formed by your pinch. Pull the loop through- keeping it as a loop, until snug.
 
Take that loop and pass it into the loop formed by your pinch. Pull the loop through- keeping it as a loop, until snug.
 
Your finished knot should look like this.
 
 

Dismount Method


 

Remove hammock chair perch from your Pelican Perch. Grasp the free end of the rope.
 
Pull firmly until loop passes through knot, freeing the rope. Then remove rope free end from around the tree. Bag up and move on, leaving tree unharmed.
