Re: Who uses a Larkshead on their jib sheets?

I use a larkshead but I place a short piece of 1/8" line with stopper knots on each end under the looped section. That makes it easier to undo the knot after it tightens up. I rarely leave sheets on for more than a couple days at a time, though. I have hank-ons, and I'm either changing sails or sheets (light/heavy) frequently.
