U

Up Knot

A knot which is used to stop the tail end falling on the floor when the bell is not in use. It will untie easily if pulled. It usually indicates that the bell has been left in the 'up' position. Ringers should always double check though by testing whether a bell is up or down, in case the previous ringer has left the wrong knot in error.
