That's how I did it today (for 2-piece stringing): Tie off mains at 7H and top cross at 6H. Last cross tie off at 7T. Works like a charm and separates the tieoff points from the last grommet hole that the string went through. I never like tying off right next to the hole; I always prefer spanning at least a couple of holes before tying off for more support.

BTW, I also went 5% lower tension on the crosses. Feels great, very uniform feel across the entire stringbed.
