Typical use robust attachment to a foundation

The boom hitch is a type of knot. It is a rather robust and secure method of attaching a line, or rope to a fixed object like a pipe, post, or sail boom. [1]

It can be finished with a slip, that is, a bight tucked under rather than the whole line pulled through in the last step. This will make it easier to untie.
