Adjustable Grip Hitch
This knot slides along the standing end.
When tension is applied it locks into place.

This may be my new sliding hitch!

I've only tried it in two different types of rope, but it gripped well and slide easily in both. Plus, it is super easy to tie, untie, and remember.

My problem with many of these sliders is that I forget them over the years. There are lots of good ones, but when I find myself needing one after not having tied one for a few years, I always end up with the taut line hitch I learned back in Boy Scouts - the only one I can remember.

This one seems easy to remember. I hope it sticks in my brain so when I need another slider in a few years, I will remember it.

This looks like a variation of the climber's prusik hitch, often used in ascending rigs. it should work very well.
