    Yeah we often use the ole truckers hitch knot (do a you tube search) but that works best when you have two static points and is a bit more difficult to do when tying what is, in effect, a loop where there is no stationary object to keep it from sliding around what you are trying to secure.I have done what you describe a few times but for an application like that I much prefer a small ratchet strap.

    Look up a double dragon, that's the knot I use a lot because it can be undone easily. You can do a bowline too. Just tie a loop in the end of the rope and then wrap it around and back through the loop like you'd be making a lasso. Then pull it down tight and tie an adjustable hitch (you tube) and draw it tight.
