Speaking of snubbing knots, here's a golden oldie from Dave:

I'll add that I've done the curtain swap and the one thing I'll add is
breasting. Depending on your grid height and distance between line sets,
you could breast the two lines closer together. I've chained two pipes
together, dropped one curtain onto plastic and then just transferred the
second directly from pipe to pipe. What you do not want to do is put too
much side load on the sheaves nor any abrasion on the cable.

One thing: This is a good time to check your hand-line knots to the arbor.
