SD, I have actually lowered it a couple of inches since that photo and the lead-in block is now mounted tightly against the pulpit base, so its much better and still clears the chocks nicely. I'm aware of the extra stress but I want it completely clear of my chocks and I want the line to run parallel to the lower lifeline for aesthetic purposes and as you can see the distance from the pulpit base on the caprail to lower lifeline gives me very up/down movement to have it parallel to the lifeline.
