This tutorial details how to tie a swiss seat or modified rappel seat (or Marine Corps Rappel Thong). Every Basically Trained Marine is taught how to tie the swiss seat in Boot Camp while tackling the rappel tower and simulated helicopter skid. Most Marines will utilize this hasty harness numerous times during their career. Its a very stable harness and a great skill set to know.


  1. Nice video, but I think you tied a granny knot rather than a square knot.

  2. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after looking at many of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
