    I find double half hitch knot too small. It always gets dragged into the grommet and damage the grommet / frame in the process. What's the most substantial tie-off knot out there that spreads the tension out evenly across a bigger surface area? Thanks!

    What's the smallest, most aesthetic knot then? Is it the wilson pro knot? I have the opposite problem as the OP, my knots are always huge and unsightly. Maybe its because i use 16 gauge.

    Yes probably the Wilson knot. But if you're using 16 gauge poly the knot could be large because you're not getting them cinched up good.
