    Many people use a bead or something of the sort to protect a whoopie sling loop from getting accidentally pulled into the bury. A Dutch Hook would serve this purpose.

    In addition, when the whoopie sling is wrapped around the knot of the MSH, the Dutch Hook could be hooked on the loop below the MSH to keep the loop from spreading and falling off the knot and toggle - the most likely reason for failure in this setup.

    A little care would be needed to insure that there is no real load on the hook (natural spread of the whoopie loop around the knot is not being restricted), but that should not be a real problem to resolve.

    Is this description clear? Thoughts?

    Dutch, something you may be interested in?
    I have these done, pm me your address.
