Loop the Loop Knot Feedback

Loop The Loop Shoelace Knot diagram

Also known as the “Klets Knot”, this method makes any regular shoelace knot more secure. Tie a Standard Shoelace Knot (or even an Ian Knot), then feed one loop through the other loop and pull it tight like a noose.

Visitor Feedback

I'm emailing you back to tell you my secure knot.

1. Tie an “Ian Secure Knot”
2. Use the “Loop the Loop” finish
3. With the elongated loose end, tie another “Ian Secure Knot”

The Result is a very secure two stage knot, that requires two pulls to untie. It's not the prettiest knot but I've worn the shoes for three days strait when camping and they've never come undone.

Ian's Reply: As for your super-duper triple-whammy ultra-secure shoelace knot, I can well imagine that it hasn't come undone, though I wonder if you'll EVER get it undone!
