    Glad to hear it's working for you. I just think it's beautiful in its simplicity.

    Consider the stopper knot like a button that is put into a buttonhole.

    So does it serve any real purpose? Is it on the tail end of the main line that wraps around the tree?

    the stopper knot is tied to the tag ends of the prusik,then they are inserted thru the larkshead holding to the end of the tarp.the knot just gives the larkshead something to hold onto so the prusik doesnt slip out

    Anyone have a video or photos of this style of setup? Wanting to possibly move from a continual ridgeline setup.

    Simple enough, but pics would be helpful for us visual types.

    I do basically the same thing but use one of the small Nite Ize instead of the prussic knot. Allows me to cinch the lines down tighter. They weigh next to nothing. Never had one slip on me.
