    QFT - Hadn't heard of the "truth" meaning. My belief and intent was Quoted for Time. Either is close to another. A quoted post can't be edited by the original poster so another user quotes some text to ensure it stays up (for eternity).

    And there it is... I left that dangling chad and Tom bit - he's opened shop making paracord jeep products (and soft shackles too??).

    Kidding aside, yes, I would be interested in one for the passenger side. Let's talk sometime.

    So here is my finished shackle. As expected 5’ is just a bit short and I didn’t have enough length forma button knot, used a diamond knot instead. Should work just fine and have a breaking strength around 30,000 lbs instead of the 34,000 lbs of a button knot.

    6’ should be ideal for a button knot version.

    Is a diamond knot significantly easier to tie? Is is much smaller in overall diameter?

    Its easier and a bit smaller but not much. The difference in strength appears to be the fact that the ends go back through the knot and then are fed inside the rope. This effectively makes the joint where the loop goes over the knot 4.ropes instead of two.
