Re: Hello to all from UK

If you tie you line to the shackle then an anchor hitch would be a good knot, plus I'd use some whipping twine and affix the working end to the line to make sure it cannot pull loose. The anchor bend self-tightens and is quite secure.

On the other hand, I like to splice and would splice my 3-strand into the chain or the shackle, since that would eliminate even more chance of chafe and a splice is stronger than a knot.
