The reliable and widely used overhand knot is the go-to tying method when connecting wire and hooks. Used by amateurs and professionals alike, the wire knot is employed to secure the components together with enviable efficiency.
Secure the wire firmly through the eye of the hook to begin creating an overhand knot. Keeping the wire safely connected, use your thumb and forefinger to form a loop. Now, take the end of the wire and glide it over the top of the existing loop before threading it back through the center. Completing the knot, pull tight and secure.
The double overhand knot provides a reliable, dependable hold for whatever you need to tie down. To craft one, create two loops in the wire and carefully thread the end of it through the loops. Give a tug to make sure the knot is secure and you’ll have a knot that’s sure to stay in place!
If your wire is slender, tying a triple overhand knot may be the right choice. Begin by looping the wire three times; once you have done so, send the final strand through all three loops and give it a firm tug to secure them together.
To secure your knot for optimal strength, make sure you firmly tighten it and snip off any excess rope.
