A couple of years ago I decided to try to give up untying knots. So I did some research with the intention of finding a set of knots that met the following criteria:
After trying various things this is what I came up with.
The knot's I've described, I use a couple of times a week, to hang my clothes lines.I have hooks in my house and fence posts and I tie in which ever position is best for the sun. It only takes a short time to set up. Taking down is done with a sharp tug on each end of the lines. I never need to struggle to untie it.
On one of the lines I use, the length is such that when I've tied the "bell ringers knot", the stopper knot will jam against the loop of the "bell ringers knot" allowing the line to sag while I hang a few items on it. I can then just grab the stopper knot and pull it to tension the line... quite handy.
This system of knots can be used for tying trailers, ridge lines for fly's or a heap of different things.
I'd encourage you to try what I did... decide to give up untying knots... the investment in the learning is well worth it!
Sounds good Frank, I might have to give it a go.
