As above, with a few "Zepplin" bends and if I'm knotting bungee then anglers loop knot or other blood type knot.

Some of these fishing line type knots or climbers knots are good in webbing useful if the winch strap fails like ours did.

Other favourite "not" - not being able to say no...with you in minute ladies
