Tent Guy Line Knots

At AMG we set up the guy lines on all of our tents the same way using a slider knot to attach the line to the tent. The slider knot is a self-tightening knot that can be adjusted by moving it up and down the line. This allows the line to be tightened without retying any knots. On the other end we tie a loop that can be girth hitched to any anchor. It’s important that all tents are tied the same. Nobody wants to get out of bed in the middle of the night to tighten lines and find a random knot that requires a gloves off retie.

In our experience, it’s the small things that contribute to successful trips. Of course it’s important to tie the knots correctly, but it’s equally important to remember to tighten the tents before leaving for the day. A loose tent fly can cause tent failure and ruin a trip. If this happens at high camp on Aconcagua, it can have life threatening consequences.

In future articles we will address valuable protocols and processes as well as the technical tips to guarantee fun and safe outdoor experiences.
