Hi Adam , a picture would be great , thank U, Hello Dog Tag I'm Living in Dublin 24.


Here we go mate, a normal Blakes hitch with an added pulley for better slack tending, ImageUploadedByTapatalk1355243018.492314.jpg.8c80da2df4e697a410889df86b5a2b80.jpg.




Then this is for picture purpose only as using a bina on your friction saver is not very practical neither safe but just to illustrate how a pulley can be added and take out at least 50% of the friction in your system.

You referring to my picture mate? :001_smile:


Not needed with a stitched/spliced eye tommy


I was mate but not in that case as, as Drew said, the stitching will do the job. Just thought that if someone new to climbing recreated the picture they might not be as vigilant. Thought it worth pointing out!! Not picking! Ha ha.
