Professor Flitwick teaching his third years this charm[src]

The Seize and Pull Charm[1][2] (Carpe Retractum) is a charm that creates a retractable, magical rope. This can be used to pull objects within a certain distance towards the caster, or to pull the caster towards whatever they affix the spell to. It is generally used on inanimate objects, although it can be used on plants or animals.
