Cleat Hitch - Halyard

 Cleat Hitch (Halyard) attaches rope to cleat - used for halyards, clotheslines, etc.

In sailing, a halyard (or halliard) is a line (rope) that is used to hoist a ladder, sail, flag or yard. The term halyard comes from the phrase, 'to haul yards'. Halyards, like most other parts of the running, rigging, were classically made of natural fibre like manila or hemp.
