Quick Reference

A name generally used for any knot in which the strands are tucked back to form a knob at the end of the rope as a stop where, for example, the rope is threaded through an eye or a ringbolt, perhaps for use as a handrope. Examples of this type of knot are a turk's head or Matthew Walker knot. However, strictly speaking, a stopper knot is another name for a single or double wall knot.
