How To Tie A Zeppelin Bend

The Zeppelin Bend is a shake-resistant and secure knot. It uses two interlocking overhand knots to connect two lines together. The Zeppelin Bend is a knot that can be loaded to the max and then be easily untied. The only downfall to the Zeppelin bend, is that it can’t be untied while being put under any load. It gets its name for being used to moor airships (Zeppelins). This knot is also known as the Rosendahl Bend, because Charles Rosendahl, a US Navy Officer, insisted on using it under his command. Some fishermen use it instead of the Double Fisherman’s Knot, because it gets rid of the possibilities of jamming tight.
