Figure 8 Double Loop (Bunny Ears)

Description

The figure 8 double loop is used to tie two loops in the end of a piece of rope. It is the preferred knot for attaching a fixed rope to two anchors.

Advantages

The loops are stable. If one anchor fails, the remaining loop will not extend.

Disadvantages

Takes more rope than the bowline on a bight.
