Securing rescuers, litters, anchor plates, anchorages, or equipment to the end of a rope.
Tie a loose figure-eight. With the working end, run around the structure being tied into and threaded back through the original figure-eight. After the working end comes around the structure, it follows the path of the rope through the single-eight until the working end comes out the bottom of the eight.
