The Anchor Hitch Knot

The Anchor Hitch, or bend, is a knot used for attaching a rope to a ring or similar termination.

While the knot can become jammed in some modern materials, it is usually easily untied after moderate loads; it can be made more resistant to jamming by taking an extra turn around the object--this will make for a 1-diameter longer span of the end to reach around the standing part to be tucked (although in a case of tying to a small shackle or link of a chain, this might not be possible).
