Quick Release Knot
Loop the rope around a post, through a ring, or loop of twine—wherever you are tying. The loose end is being held in the right hand, and the snap end is being held in the left.
Cross the rope being held in the right hand under the ‘snap end’ rope.
Cross the rope back over top of the ‘snap end’, and pull a loop up through the resulting circle.
Pull the rope tight against the post, ring or twine.
