Generally if load is put on the two standing ends it will undo easily (just push on the two throats).
If high load is put on the loop and one end it will unfortunately jam every single time.
I can't think of another alternative loop where high load can be put on any of the 3 components though. Maybe someone else has a suggestion?

Well, in my lounge room it seems perfect. Easy to do as well. So I'm thinking it's just the thing. Thanks for the suggestion.

Tension needs to be put on the loop for this one. Probably all that is needed here, so that would work . It would also probably untie more easily than the ABL in this application, but would need very careful dressing before any load was applied.

Been practicing this one off Utube. Fairly easy as well, once I worked it out. I'm betting I'll need to practice it repeatedly or I'll forget how to do this one, where as the butterfly thingy I think was so easy I'll remember it.

I like that the 'Bowline on a bight' has a double rope on where the drogue will clip on, the bow that is.
