NOW - anyone have an idea other than a pulley? my spin retrieval line is burning/cutting through my trap lacing as I pull it and it runs from the rear of the snuffer bag up from under, to the top of the tramp. I've run it through the lacing. Adding a pulley? I'm not sure if it will stay in place and line will stay on it?

A mini block is he way to go. Attaches easily and holds the line in place !!!

Until I get a mini block installed, I used a caribeener....
mounted at the back of the tramp.
And I make sure that the hoist/retrieval lines are not 'rubbing' on anything...
