Or loopshackle? Just splice in the diamond knot a couple inches back up the standing line, and have the end loop around and hook into the knot.

I wan tis to be easily removable because it is for my new bridgskin. I should have put those metal triangles on the corners but it is too late for that.

Make sense?
I tried this last night but the 1/2" bury cam out. Then I made a 2" shackle with a 1" bury and that seamed to work. I will have to test it out to see if it will hold some weight.
