    The tautline hitch is good for this.
    In the Girl Scouts, we called it the
    tent stake knot.
    
    Here's a nice picture of it.

    Subject: [NAV-L] Knot Question
    
    Hi:
    
    I would like to plumb a number of antenna masts by adjusting the length of
    the 3 parachute cord guy ropes that are staked into the ground.  Is there a
    knot that would allow adjusting the length of the line, yet would hold fast?
    
    Thanks for any help,
    
    Brooke Clarke, N6GCE
