It is a slip knot, so it will get pulled tight, unless the knot making the slip knot is tight.  You'll have to tie a good permanent knot about the size of your finger to avoid this.

Thanks for posting those links Walkingbird, I was not familiar with the perfection loop, looks like a good knot to know, and easily tied. For the release end, when I use a knot, I like the monkey's fist, a little harder to tie, but worth the effort.

Jamie and Oscar
     Glad to help. Knots interest me and so I maintain some links to knot sites on my computer. When I need a knot I'll try and find what would work best and then pratice it till its memorized.
     Oscar, yes the perfection knot is easy to tie. But more than that, it will not slip, and the reason it is used as a fishing knot if because it will retain about 97% of the strength or the fishing line. As you probably know knots weaken a line, usually by cutting themselves. This is the knot used on all commercially sold snelled hooks. I don't like to have a tackelbox full of them, because if you pull one out the whole contents of the tackel box comes with it. So I just carry a bit heaver line than what is on my pole and use it to snell my own hooks, when I'm done I just cut the line off and return the hook to the box.
    A guy can get by knowing about 1 dozen or so good knots, and the perfection knot is a good one to know. Glad to share with you. That made my day knowing it was a help.
