    Line-End-Biner

    I don't know if this has been used before or not.

    I did a test set-up today to finish adding lines to my new MacCat Deluxe.

    I wanted lines for the side panel pull-outs that would be easy to remove without untying knots or using separate biners.

    What I came up with are "line-end-biners". I suspect that I will find several uses for this.

    The end knot is an Ashley Stopper Knot.

    The slip knot is a variation I took from the style of trucker's hitch in this video. You need the long length of the line to form the slip (not the biner loop side).

    It takes 2 1/2 or 3 twists in the loop to keep it from getting too tight to easily unlock. Clear as mud, right?

    This is a knot worth remembering. Thanks for sharing.

    Cool idea. You could probably just as easy do a marlinspike hitch as the slipping portion? I'm going to try this when I get near some cordage - curse business trips (or maybe I could try this with my tie at the conference ).

    Thanks again!
    Its working, could get rid of my biners on the tieouts now.
    Will try this on the first end of the continous ridgeline also since I have a biner there.

    Thanks. A lot of the slip knots get too tight with a load and make the biner difficult to open. This one does not seem to have that problem, but time under load will tell.
