    Figure 9 on CRL with a bite?

    Quick question, does anyone create a "bite" in their figure nines? Below is the instructions they give for pulling tight and tighing off a line. but i tend to do it the second way (i know bad graphics, all we have is Paint at work). taking it through pull hook then back over the line (blue line wraps over red) then behind and into the teeth. this seems to reduce slipping. anyone else do this? will it weekend my my RL cord? or am i just crazy?

    Edit: I use the figure 9's to attach RL to tree. set it up the wat the box said a few times but would start to slip over time. when i wrap it my way, it stays snug all night. I am using the REI generic guy line for ridge line btw.
