Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!
I'm still here. Yes you can use a thimble as your 'gate tension', just make sure that when you splice the line around the thimble you can still fit it through the stanchion. You'll probably still need to find a way to adjust for constructional stretch.
It'll be a little challenging. You may need to remove a stanchion near the gate to splice the line, then pull on the stanchion and reinstall.
