Using chain links for line lockers has one major downside. They can do this to your webbing:
And it looks worse when it’s under tension!
So here’s my work around.
Get a few inches of webbing and sew it to your chainlink so it covers up the burr
Make the following line locker:
This also helps prevent metal/metal contact between your chain link and carabiner.
While I’m at it, if you’re using a rappel ring for a locker it’d be better to make a double bight on your webbing to prevent metal/metal contact:
This is great for attaching the line to the anchor. Just try to have a smallish tail (4 inches??) when using this to connect to the camming(/ellington) system so it doesn’t get in the way. Or just get some chain.
