The Over Mount is the opposite mount of the Under Mount. It is one of the most basic mounts in yo-yoing. It is also the starting point for a Frontstyle Bind.

You can get into it using the method described below. Other ways are

  • to pinch the string with your free hand and bring your throw hand around the front bringing the string into the gap
  • from a Ripcord

A great way to practice the Over Mount and Under Mount is the trick Over and Under.
