Topic - Ram's Head lower-offs

Coel Hellier - on 17 Jul 2013
The discussion of sport-climbing accidents has got me thinking about the Ram's Head lower-offs installed at Horseshoe and elsewhere. Generally I like them (much easier then re-threading) and happily lower off them.

Are they safe for top-roping? I'd have thought not (the difference being that when top-roping the rope is slacker), and have always placed quickdraws if another member of the party wanted to top-rope the route. However consulting Google doesn't provide a definitive statement either way, and perhaps people might top-rope on them. Is that safe?
