What kind of knot tightens as you pull?
In fact the Arbor Knot is really based on a noose knot and, therefore, pulling tightens it. The same knot is used in Bushcraft under the name Canadian Jam Knot where a light rope, e.g., paracord, is being used to compress a load such as a sleeping bag or is used as the first step in creating a lashing.
Why does a clothesline always sag?
A clothesline always sags a little, even if nothing hangs from it. The clothesline has a finite mass, and so the tension in the line must have an upward component to oppose the downward force of gravity. Thus, the line sags much the same as if it has weight on it.
