    UCR + Taut Line Hitch

    I made some 10' UCR's the other day for my Claytor JH with a 10" bury and a taut line hitch securing the "problem end". They have not slipped once in several test hangs over a period of 3-4 days. They weighed in at .75 oz. each. Love it!

    Great idea thanks... I was wondering about taut-line+UCR. Thanks. What rope/diameter are you using? DynaGlyde?
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!
