How are you guys attaching your anchor to the rope on you winch?? A knot or clip of some sort? I'm trying to set mine up for the weekend and I'm not sure how to do it. I've seen guides with just a knot and a kong for a dog to act as a bumper I'm guessing. If you guys could help that would be cool!! Thanks!!!

I just use a knot to tie to my chain anchor and try to loop it through the ring twice. I've used a tennis ball as a bumper but it just rotted and fell a part. Kong is a good idea. Might have to raid the dogs toy bin.

What kind of knot did you use?
If I am tying a knot for straight lined anchors?
I like a scaffold knot or use a bowline knot.
Scaffold clinches down and over time will have to be cut.
Bowline cinches down but can be worked undone even over time.
Either tied properly will work without fail.
