Seems like a lot of trouble to have your lines shackled to the dock, if you wanted to take them with you on the boat. Do you put a wire or zip tie through the shackle pin to keep them from unscrewing open?

Do lines have a problem chafing through where they are tied to a dock cleat? My lines seem to get far more wear where they rub something on the boat.
