So, I checked the article out, but it doesn't really show how the slinks were "closed". I'm assuming based on lack of knowledge of that jumper, they were simply slipped over the "stub" without passing through/underneath as I am suggesting above. This would indicate that they held in this scenario.
Does anyone else have additional testing on this? Any riggers ever done drop tests in the loft with an incorrectly installed slink, or am I going to have to do it? Hehe.
