Do you need to tie a noose in a rope to gather and secure materials, set a trap (for a predator attacking your chickens or other animals, for example) or something like that? The process is simple and easy. However, don't put the noose around your neck under any circumstances - not even for fun.

If you want to tie the knot because you're having suicidal thoughts, stay calm and get help right away. In this case, do the following:

  • Call the Center for Valuing Life (CVV) at 188. You will talk to a person who is qualified and willing to help.
  • Call the Fire Department on the number 193. Currently, many Fire Departments are able to deal with situations involving suicidal thoughts.
  • Read How to Handle Suicidal Thoughts if you need help coping with a crisis.

If this not is your intention, read the tips below. And don't forget: you are not alone!

Steps

Part 1 of 2: Forming the knot

Tie a Noose Step 1

Step 1. Form a loop with the end of the rope going over it

You will use this tip to tie the knot right away. The longest part of the material should be underneath. Try to form a loop 10 to 15 cm in diameter.

In addition to a traditional rope, you can use string, sewing line or even fishing line. The process is the same with all materials

Step 2. Thread the longest part of the rope through the loop

Hold the end of the rope over the longest part of the rope so the loop doesn't come apart. Then take this remaining material and go through the loop itself.

  • The rope will form a sort of second loop, which should be roughly the same diameter as the first.
  • At this point, the string will almost form a scrambled infinity (∞) symbol.

Step 3. Pull the longest part of the rope through the loop

Run your hand under the first loop and grab the rest of the rope, which is more or less inside it. Still holding the material with your non-dominant hand, pull the string that is now on the underside.

Part 2 of 2: Tying the knot

Step 1. Pull the longest part of the rope under the loop to make the loop

Continue pulling this piece of material until you form the loop, which is the opening of the gallows - and the stretch you will pass through the object you want to attach or hang. The two ties will get smaller and smaller at this point.

The further you move the loop away from the loop itself, the stronger the gallows will be at the end

Step 2. Pass the smaller loops down to make the loop smaller (optional)

Like the slip knot, the noose tightens each time the rope is pulled. Before you tighten the material, try passing the smaller loops down until you adjust the loop size.

Step 3. Pull the loop and rope end tightly in opposite directions to finish

Hold the loop in one hand and the end of the rope (the one you used earlier in the process) with the other. Pull the two in different directions to finish the knot altogether. Ready!

You can loosen the center knot of the loop if you want to relax the gallows

Notices

  • Think very carefully about how you want to use the gallows. Do not do evil against animals (dogs, cats and other animals of small or medium size) and much less other people!
  • Some countries, like the United States, see the gallows as a lethal weapon - and carrying objects of the type in certain situations can even lead to jail. Be careful!
  • If you're having any suicidal thoughts, stop and get help immediately. Start by calling emergency services such as the Fire Department (on 193).

    • Also call the Center for Valuing Life (CVV) on the number 188. You will be able to talk to a person who is qualified and willing to help.
    • Currently, many Fire Departments are able to deal with situations involving suicidal thoughts.
    • Read How to Handle Suicidal Thoughts if you need help coping with a crisis.
    • Don't forget: you are not alone! Call 193 or 188 or talk to someone you trust.
