Topic - Clove hitch in quickdraw extender

adam 24 - on 05 Dec 2013
Question I was wandering about:

A lot of sport climbers have black rubber things around the lower krab of the draw and the webbing to make clipping easier. If you were using a trad extender - i.e instead of a nylon webbing you have a standard 60cm dyneema sling between the karbs - could you use a clove hitch to keep the lower krab from moving? It works fine for keeping the krab still, but is it dangerous for some reason? Would the clove hitch compromise the strength of the dyneema?

Thanks,
Adam
