i have very recently been using a slippery clove hitch on my msr groundhogs, seems to work, didn't work on the smc snow stakes which i tried yesterday.

you need it to be slippery on the groundhog b/c they have those hook type heads on them and you could not slide it off once it sets.

how much return force do you guess your shock cord is pulling on each pull tab with?
