I was ascending out of Choices Pit in Polygamy yesterday, and my knee ascender kept jamming.

The knee ascender is a Gibbs (and I've tried a croll, that jams MUCH worse).

How I have it attached to the knee ascender harness is that it's tied into he harness. The bungee is also tied to the top of the eye of the Gibbs.
What I think was happening is that the bungees was loading the Gibbs in such a way as to make it cock and then jam up.

There is a hole at the top of the Gibbs ascender, but it's too small for anything that I Can find to be passed through. I was thinking that one of the micro sized biners would be a good fit, but I can't be sure.

If push comes to shove, could I drill the hole in the top of the Gibbs out to accept one of the mini 'biners that are commonly available?
