    I'm planning on making a UCR; is a locked brummel necessary for the loops or will a simple loop buried back into itself be strong enough? I'm just worried that if you pulled on the loop wrong you might pull the end out of the bury.

    A simple bury can back out or be pulled out when not under load. You should either lock stitch the bury or use the locked brummel. The locked brummel adds strength as well.

    It's not necessary, but... If you're worried about the bury coming out, just back stitch it. IOW, after you to the bury, it best to put it under load. Then get out some needle and thread and sew down the length of the bury. I think Sgt Rock has a good video on making UCR's where he shows how to Back Stitch.

    That's what I was thinking, just wanted to double check. Makes sense I suppose! Thank you for the help! I can't get enough of HF! So much knowledge and such generous people!

    It took a little work but I finally got it all right...I think. If I don't fall tonight we can call it a success.
