how they hanging.....the lines?

I've recently been noticing how people secure their halyards, lines etc. Lots of different ways to coil a line, secure it, and hang it on a cleat.

Any ideas on which technique is most popular? I need to learn the good one.

A little older, but handy nonetheless. It's the one that stuck with me, and how I try to stow mine when I remember to do so. (the whole series is informative, and worth a watch)

Re: how they hanging.....the lines?

If you’re belaying to a vertical cleat the method is to figure of eight on the cleat, then twist and belay along the lay of the last turn. Then bring the line through the coil, twist it once and wedge it on top of the cleat.
This is a secure method, but also allows the coil to be removed very quickly if necessary.
There are loads of books on ropes which will cover everything.
Here is a picture of my lines belayed to pins on rails. Not many people use these nowadays but they do have the advantage of keeping your lines off the mast and stops them banging at 3am.
