The ground-line hitch is a type of knot used to attach a rope to an object. Worked-up and dressed properly, it is more secure than the simpler clove hitch and has less tendency to jam. It can also be used as a simple binding knot and is classed among several knots known as the Miller's knot. The Ground-line hitch is also the start of a three-lead four-bight Turk's head.
