I don't know if this is a concern, but I did wonder - so I use a short piece of the hollow webbing that came with my DD Frontline to sheathe the Amsteel in the channel. It should provide some protection to the fabric and when trimmed after the lark's head is pulled tight the webbing is only about 2-3 inches long. But, as another said, there is no movement once tightened so I doubt if there is any wear in the channel. The weak spot, IMO, would be the stitching. For me, I like the looks of the channel.
