Endless sling - shorten.

I have purchased a long sling to use for a vertical speedline where the rounds are

I want to use the sling to choke around the log and clip the free end to the speedline. However, I would like to adjust the free end to remove slack. Tieing a knot is not what I want to do as I image it is a) hard to untie in a sling and b) will weaken damage the sling.

Any advice other than “buy a shorter sling”? :)

Your answer got me thinking..

How about this:

Normal choke around the log leaving a desired loop length to clip to the speedline with the free end being cow hitched above and backed with a timber hitch.
This means that the weight of the log
will chock both bottle and top hitches!

Ha! Such a simple and neat solution. The last wrap is the one that counts and will self tighten. Nice. Thank you!

Get some tenex and splice some up! Easy peezy and cheap. Or go with adjustable loopies, or the above double wrap, or half hitch
