Default pulling on knots

should you not pull tension on a knot? what i mean is...i ncrease tension on the last 2 mains, then do a 1/2 hitch...at that point should i pull tension to bed the knot, then tie another 1/2 hitch, or just knot it and let them be?

Default Re: pulling on knots

Tie the full knot and pull gently with your pliers. No tensioning necessary.
