Low Profile Halyard Bend

My solution to the same problem was a bend with zero drift (the headboard itself can jam up against the block). If your halyard can pass through the cringle twice but not thrice, the folowing has served me well. Pass a bight through the cringle and then take the bitter end around and pass it through the bight and snug up. Works just like a loop and toggle.
