Any thoughts on the use of a klemheist knot instead of a standard prusik for tensioning or in minding pulleys at height? The klemheist is much quicker to tie on a line and stays neater, but outside of climbing I've never seen it used on static rescue lines. I'd like input as to it's reliability in this use? Ideas, Thoughts, Comments?

It was, but there are other tension uses of prussics - hauling loads vertically, belay stops of rappels or lowered loads, capturing progress on boat telfers in swiftwater applications...etc.
