I've only done this once, but it seems to work great. Just girth hitch your tether, it's going nowhere.

I might have to try that. I have tried girth hitching twice, running the tag end thru the loop twice, etc but i still have slippage anytime i put slack in the line. And sometimes when i go from leaning to sitting the rope will slide 6" or more and makes things really exciting. This is on oak trees with coarse bark and it still doesnt matter

Give it a try and let us know, it may work better for some ropes than others.

Just wrap your tether around the tree twice and girth hitch it. If you tether isn't long enough just wrap it through the eye of you tether 2x. Check out Areohunter and look at the tether to see how it's done. It's very simple.

The Jx3 hybrid has a unique way to prevent tether slide when I get home I will take a picture. Or maybe some one else who has one can.

I tried the castration bands then I had an idea to set up faster. I got one of those tarp ball bungees and cut off the bungee cord. One end was large enough for my Predator tether rope and the other end I drilled out enough to make a tight fit on the tether. Just slide the ball up in a second and it stays put.

My JX3 I used to have had a stopper ball which worked perfectly. So, I wanted to make one out of something I had around the farm so this is what I could find. lol.

View attachment 20039Girth hitch to itself. Free, nothing additional to monkey with, and I promise it won't go anywhere.
Saw this on the forum a little while back (after YEARS of aggravation!), tied over in my oplux and it works great!! That, and passing the stick around the tree instead of trying too throw 7/64 amsteel!! Whomever posted that one gets a six of beer from me!! Miller lite I'm sure
