As to slack, its pretty simple just place the pieces , clove one, pull through the bights till u havr enough for a fig 8 and then clove the other... Then tie the fig 8

Ah, that makes much more sense. BTW, that's not what you said earlier. Thanks for the clarification.

Edited (because BB is still describing something different from what i think he actually does ) to add the following:

So you:
1 - Clove hitch the first outside piece
2 - Clip the middle piece and the second outside piece
3 - Pull down the two arms (between the middle and outside pieces) and make a big fig-8 knot with both bights together.
4 - Take the rope you clipped through the second outside piece and turn it into a clove on that biner.
5 - Use that big knot in the middle as your power-point, and clip yourself into it.

As for the forces - maybe I need to go all the way back to my HS physics textbooks, but I don't see why the middle piece, with double the connections to the power-point, wouldn't see double the force.

GO
