Trucker’s Hitch — What Does the Knot Say?

You may recall the Norwegian comedy team Ylvis from their viral hit, “What Does the Fox Say?,” which was viewed more than a half billion times on Youtube. One of their more recent music videos, released in September, is on knot tying, specifically, the Trucker’s Hitch. The Trucker’s Hitch also known as a Power Cinch Knot is useful for securing a dinghy to the deck as well as having a number of other uses. Now, thanks to Ylvis, it is also a dance move. While their video is a lot of fun, if you actually want to learn how to tie a trucker’s hitch check out the video from the good folks at Animated Knots by Grog, after the page break.
