So I ran across this "Fish Bone Knotless Gear
Tie" thingy awhile ago on some backpacker blog. Didn't think much of it at the time, why not just tie a knot
Mainly I was interested by the fact that the guy started a Kickstarter for it asking for $1,000 but now has almost $90,000 pledged for it, which seems crazy to me because knots are free and don't weigh anything for backpackers.
Then other night I started wondering if the concept
could be adaptable for use as a method of attaching a snubber to a Dyneema anchor
If I understand the FEA model correctly it is showing the Load Transmission
in bright red, as a measure of friction or grippyness, not failure of the material.
