Cat’s Paw Single Column

This single column is very fast to create and apply. Properly applied it will not cinch down.

It is really great for a fast hook up for a flogging scene or something!

Pros:  This knot is very fast and reasonably attractive

Cons:  Improperly applied this will collapse (cinch down) over time. It will also do so if the person likes to fight or struggle. So this is good for person that just wants to feel the sensation of being bound, but not really for eels.

For this tie, I used one 10′ (~3m) piece of Natural 6mm provided by my affiliate Twisted Monk.

Check them out for some amazing hemp rope!

  1. This cuff can also be made with a rope that’s folded a second time before you start the twisting. You’ll end up with four strands around the wrist, making it more comfortable (which could be good or bad 😏) and a thicker “handle” to hold on to.
    Doing it this way with a ~3m rope I ended up with double strands and a bight both about 1m long.

    1. Interesting! Did it still have enough friction that it did not collapse under tension?
