Default Re: How to double knot when using Gator-Bite?

Exactly, I do half knots 3 times before actually double knoting it off. That way it stays tight when you do that last knot.

So I put the thread though the GB and do a half knot (do the first half knot of the backside of the bow) then flip it over and bring the thread back through the GB and do another half knot (on the frontside) then once again flip it over and pull your thread through again and then this time when you do your half knot pull tight. The middle will "sinch" together and you'll have your 3 bumps. Tie it off... I usually knot it about 3 times just to be safe. After that remover your GB and cut your thread ends.

I'll take pics if you want
