Topic - Threading skyhooks/grappling hooks

NottsRich on 05 Jan 2013
How do you thread Petzl skyhooks and a BD grappling hooks that don't have slings on them already?

With the skyhooks I've seen 2 common methods (note where the sewn joint is and it's implication on if the tape hangs between rock and shank, or outside the shank.) Which is better, and why?

With the BD grappling hook I've struggling to find any information at all. What methods are recommended? I'm talking in terms of which order you thread the holes, where the knot goes, and if you wrap around the shank or not, as in this photo:

Or only use one hole as in this photo:

As I'll be threading them with cord myself I'd like recommendations and tips that aren't for sewn slings please! Cheers.
