Don't ya just love cheap, easy, elegant solutions that actually work? The above is one of 'em. I'd like to add - Put a bit of antioxidant stuff on each wire before you crimp it. It doesn't take much.

Hi Dick, I respectfully disagree with the above statement. I use the cowtail method. The cowtails are not fall-arrest lanyards, but rather short regular rope. Mine are tied to the front D-Ring and ar

Hi Pete, You should get a bunch of different opinions on this. I like a short hangman's knot. 3 to 5 turns instead of 13 (hi). With a bit of practice it's another knot that you can tie without thinki

Personally, I don't think anyone could argue against Michael on this. OnTheOtherHand : These instruments are pretty expensive. If you don't have the $$ right now you can get by with a Grid Dip Meter.
