Looping Line To Belaying Pin

I had to experiment around with a few different techniques to be able to tie the line around the Belaying Pin. This is the method that works for me.

First I make a Loop on the string and pinch it between some Surgical Clamps… Unclamped
Then I hook the Loop underneath the Belaying Pin and at the same time, gently pulling back with my other hand on the String while slowly letting go the Clamp
String pulled back after hooking underneath the Belaying Pin
Then I put a Clamp on it to add tension to give me time to add the Transparent Wood Glue
Just a drop in the end of a Wooden Skewer
I dab it underneath the Belaying Pin to hold it
Sometimes a Grab Hook helps in looping

I have done the looping on the top side of the Belaying Pin both with some Tweezers or a Grab Hook.

I cut the String and dab a bit of CA Glue to the outside of it and push the string against it
