So what's wrong with shackles instead of larks heads or bowlines. The obvious objection to 1/4 metal objects flying around aside ( a dip in liquid rubber, and not being forward during flailing periods fixes that) isn't that actually better, a slimmer 'connection' to the clew so it gets hung up on the shrouds during a tack etc..
