now i'm also perplexed as to why this fresh job just snapped within 30 minutes not having been used at all.
Yea I use the clamp as a pair of pliers more or less. With Parnell (I cant cooment on other knots) yo have to pull both of the loops or it wont get tight and snug. I just feel like I can get the knot tighter by using the clamp tighten the knot.
