Typical use create three loops on one knot

The triple bowline knot or a triple bowline on the bight is a variation of the bowline knot that is used to create three loops on one knot simultaneously. As the second name implies, it is possible to tie this knot in the bight without access to the ends of the rope.

This knot is used only occasionally. Its uses include producing an anchor with three separate points of attachment, and its use as an improvised rescue sling. For rescue, the patient sits with one leg through each of two loops, and the torso through the third.
