Sling angle 16-Oct-2008 At 5:13:46 PM shamus

I'm guessing this is your question? That once you tie the knot, it essentially becomes like a pulley on the sling, will tighten and the green downwards force from the carabiner gets translated into opposing forces on the knot, "crossloading" the knot and creating a large force across the black length of sling as it goes through the knot? If so, I cant help you with an answer, I thought about your question and came to the same problem myself. It clearly helps create a straight single-line force on the carabiner, avoiding crossloading it, but the angle of forces on the sling still seem bad. Anyone able to help?
