Topic - Threading slings directly to wires

kingjam - on 23 Jul 2013
Hi


I was told this weekend that threading a sling directly into a wire ( instead of use a crab ) was a bad thing ( i was trying to extend and only had a sling and a crab) . Appreciate that wires are abrasive but wouldn't have through the friction generated from a fall would be enough too sheer the tape especially if the tape is tied tightly with a larks foot .

Only other issue I could see is potentially dislodging they nut as the rope moves up .

Any views ?
