It is strange that this  clever adjustable system went by unnoticed, remaining behind the curtain. The simplicity of its development, where a bight is fed through a marlin spike, and the working end is yet fed through this very bight, surpasses some adjustable mechanisms i have seen.

One other quality, is that the line can not capsize to a fixed eye knot and blow its adjustability. Beyond some bulkyness of the main nub, the final securing with half hitches seems needless, as long as the working end remains perpendicular to the axis of loading and balance comes through. A binder, might be another implementation for this knot.

Did you develop it yourself? Either way, thanks for sharing it!! 8)
