That's a good idea Irvin. A lot of times a couple of extra inches is all you need.
On my Stringway I was very surprised how well the tension gripper works. I came up pretty short on one frame I was stringing and the string only just reached the gripper. I figured I'd try the pull anyway and just be ready if the string came loose and the weight fell. Luckily it worked. When I examined the string afterwards I could see the gripper only needed about a half inch of string to make the pull.
