Versatackle tied in Nylon rope
A versatackle is a way of simulating a block and tackle without actual pulleys or deadeyes. It consists of two loops with the rope passed back and forth between them.

Make a loop knot on one end of the rope and another loop knot in the middle, just longer than the area to be bound. (An overhand loop knot is used here)
Pass the second working end through the loop knot in the first working end.
Bring the second working end up through the loop knot tied in the middle of the rope.
Repeat until there are three complete passes (three ropes in each loop).
Pull on the second working end, and work out the slack to tighten.
