Without bury or passthrough
What would be the effect of not creating an adjustable loop with a bury or a passthrough and making the loop by larksheading the end opposite the diamond knot around the line before the knot.
It pulls tightly around the lines before the knot, but does it further degrade the overall strength of the loop shackle because of the larkshead. Is there any way this might slip over the knot?
Maybe dumb questions. I've made several of these from the instructions given in this thread and they appear to be very handy. The larkshead seems easier, but may not be safe or strong enough.
