Definitions

with-draw

Overhand knot with draw-loop

With an overhand knot with draw-loop, the weight of the load the rope carries depresses the loop sufficiently to keep it in place until the load item is placed in its location. When no longer required the free end may be pulled and draw the loop through and so release the load.

A free version is sometimes used as a stopper.
