I mean.. If i'm stringing the mains at let's say 22kgs i will change the tension to 24kgs on the last two mains of each side. But even when i do that the last main is very loose. I keep the knots tight.
It's not the knot
, it's the slack between the knot and the clamp that must be addressed. The rocking/pulling motion, done very carefully, is the way to cinch the string.
I'd be WAY careful using an awl. Most grommets aren't designed to hold two strings and a sharp piece of metal
