Pulling the knot tight is unnecessary and could be damaging to anchor string. By pulling too tight, it could "choke" the anchor string and result in snapping it prematurely. Not a lot of pressure is needed to keep the knot snug.

In this video, you could see I don't pull the knot very tight and do it by hand. (Knot is near end of video). I also demonstrate the use of a cam action clamp/plier.
