      Do you mean like Shanes?

      I don't really need it. Just an idea I'm throwing out there. What
      it does is it gets me away from the intersection of the webbing and
      the rope and the tree. Although the recommended knot is simple, I do
      find it annoying if I have to undo it to readjust tension.

      You may be right. I think its time for a little experimentation.
