    Oh, of course, that make perfect sense. I found a high quality tutorial from Animated Knots on how to make the shackle. I'll just skip the small loop at the beginning. Thanks!

    I took a few tries to get the button knot right, but I finally got it. I also discovered the "universal" loop style, so I made a couple of those too. I'll be playing around with these to see which I prefer in what set-ups. I'm still experimenting, so I don't know what I like yet.
