Was just about to fid up a new one piece tarp ridge with some dutch hooks and a flyz but I am going to give this method a shot to eliminate one of the hooks. I need to find a schematic for the figure 8 stopper knot...
Thanks for the tip!
i do it in a similar fashion.
tie a knot in the end of the string.i like a monkeyfist.then tie a loop below that.the loop should be a little longer then the knotted end.
or the same thing but spliced instead of knotted for the loop.i have found the slideing lock to be unnecessary
on the other end i do a marlin spike hitch and trail stick,in place of a fig.9.
like this.i can get the line very tight like this.

I thought about the monkey Fist but that know always irritates me trying to tie.

Thanks for the other ideas!
I quite like the look of it, but I don't really see any advantages of that setup over a simple quick easy to do and release whatever-you-like-hitch?
