Help with a Bar Tack stitch...?

I have a Brother XL-3750 sewing machine and I am working on a project that requires me to do a "Bar Tack" and I have absolutely no Idea how to do this or what to set my sewing machine on. I have a denim/leather needle, so that part I'm not worried about, It's just figuring out how to do it. Any tips would be great!! Also, a picture of a bar tack stitch and/or a bar tack setting on a sewing machine would be really helpful. Thank You!

    A bar tack is a zig-zag stitch with a length of zero and at the width you want the bar tack.

    The needle choice is based on the type of fabric being sewn.

    You can find a bar tack at the bottom of the zipper fly on jeans.

    Technically a bar tack is made with a zig zag stitch. But if you have to make it out of the blanket stitch I'd simply make the blanket stitch in one direction, then reverse it and make it in the other direction. It would actually look quite nice. Best of luck.

    It's just a section of fairly narrow satin stitch at the end of a seam.

    Try a zigzag, length 0.5-1mm, width 2-4 mm.
