  Prusik.. not just for climbing/zdrags
  Posted by: sloopsailor on Jun-11-13 11:01 AM (EST)

I use a prusik loops all the time in my job. We needed to secure a piece from moving on tight walk wire(yes walking a tight rope). Rig the tight rope (10 ton tension up hill cable). We needed a temporary piece so the actor could mount the line. Slipped the mount under the wire, held it in place with a prusik so it couldn't slip. The Circus people were very interested in how well it worked.
When camping, I ran a cable 80' or so over the top of the campsite. Used prusik loops to position the tarp where I wanted it over the cable.

Rigging safety on fly lines in the theater, holding adjustable counter weight bags. Used one to help clear a jammed line on a sailboat winch. It gave us another purchase point to relieve the pressure so we could unwrap the jammed winch. A great knot to use!
