Hi Guys, sorry to ask Ive only been climbing for a few months and still trying to get my lanyard set up right!! a good friend of mine told me how to do it but think I might have done it slightly wrong so any one with a photo of how they do theirs would be great? Or tell me what I’ve done wrong with mine :( it seems a little tight but not sure why?

I think you've got a bit too much cord their for a distel hitch, that extra wrap is probably why it feels tight. 

 

Is the ring to aid in releasing the tension? shouldn't be needed with the pulley - thats the whole point of the pulley.

What’s the purpose of the black ring?

It keeps the 2 ropes from touching to prevent friction I’m amazed no one else has done this, a good friend of mine recommended it and it does help just wanting to Clarify the way the rope is set.

Ditch the ring.

Pointless

Try a couple of hitches.

Michoacan,knut etc

Distels lock up alot.

Look at youtube for hitches.

Seriously,the ring is pointless
