/ Closed loop prusik
This one is only 30cm
Place the knot near to one end of the loop and tie an overhand knot at the very end. Clip the krab through this small loop, then use a french prusik in the usual way, winding the loop upwards away from the krab. This will always hold the knot at the base of the prusik.
... or just clove-hitch your krab into the prusik loop near to the knot.
make the hitch 'leading' it with the double fishermans in your hand. when you tighten it, pull the knot, yanking it a bit on one side.
the loop will then tighten with the dblfishermans knot a bit off center of where you will clip/weight it.
easy one-handed too.
hope that makes sense. a bit hard to describe but easy to do.
They're quite stiff, good for poking through thread placements but probably not a good thing if you were wanting to use one as a prusik.
Sterling Rope and Blue Water Rope seem to manufacture sewn prusik slings.
