The Overhand knot is used in other knots including the [[Knot#Square knot|Square knot]] which is two Overhand knots. The overhand knot can be used temporarily but can untie very easily if tied around something. The overhand knot can be used as a stopper knot and can keep a rope from fraying or unraveling but the [[Special_Knots#Figure_Eight|Figure Eight]] is a much better stopper knot.
