    The only thing I would be concerned about is if it can remain secured under no load conditions and things are flopping about. With the splice that has never been a concern.

    I posted a version Im trying out.. All the links Ive found call it a "soft shackle." The chinese stopper knot that, to my understanding, is the norm for the soft shackle I tried but didnt look pretty. Red sent me a couple links to some other stoppers and Im giving one a try right now.

    I agree.

    I tried this method between my (blue) UCR and my (grey) hammock end loop :


    It held securely once I carefully set and pre-stressed the lark's head. I did once have the lanyard knot get pulled around and through its own loop so that the blue lark's head was undone. Though I didn't hit the ground the quick 'bump' was disconcerting.

    thanks for testing that frawg.and posting your results.i was a liitle worried that might happen.so if i understand,the action of the blue rope trying to reach sraigtness under load,pushed the grey knoy back around and through.you did not hit ground because it got hung up on the stopper,barely?

    I don't know if this knot was posted, I learned it as a knife lanyard knot. I put this together for another forum last week.

    I can't remember where I found it and I haven't been able to locate it on line. It could almost be considered a decorative knot.



    1. This knot is usually tied in a loop going through the lanyard hole, but to make it easier to see I tied it in two colored lines.



    2. I'm left handed so you may need to reverse, green line is looped behind then in front of red line, and in front of itself.



    3. Loop the red line over then behind the green line behind itself.



    4. Continue the path of the red line, doubling it, keeping the line parallel to itself.



    5. Now double the green line, the bitter ends will be in the center of the knot.



    6. Pinching the bitter ends together and the standing ends together, then slowly and evenly work the knot tight. The knot will look the same on both sides.

    Double Wall Knot (with two strands)

    ABoK #779

    The two-stand Matthew Walker (interlocked overhand knots), ABoK #776 is worth knowing too.

    Thanks, that must be where I found it. I'm familiar with the two strand MW knot. I haven't seen my copy of Ashley's book around. I'll have to locate it, thanks for reminding me.
