    After your done stringing the crosses, do you tie the knot on the main string while the string is clamped, or do you release the clamp and then tie the knot?

    Always leave the string clamped while tying the knots. Hold the knot tight with your pliers while releasing the clamp. You will lose less tension on the tie-offs if you do it that way.
