The overhand knot keeps the string from pulling through alongside the perch stick. If you rely on the perch to hold the string, the perch will be too tight to trigger the snare when a bird lands on it. Small birds are very light.

Why put the over hand knot at the base of the perch?? I'm just curious, I understand the loop knot but not the overhand knot..Is this a necessity in order for it to work or can i just let the dead fall of the rock close the slip knot freely?edit on 31-8-2011 by NewsWorthy because: misspelling
