IKO has acknowledged that there have been several close to accident situations when Dreambar's chicken loop quick release hasn't released properly.
It is a pin-release system, but the loops connected by the pin are made from too thick line - both loops are made from the line of same thickness. The line also isn't slippery. So even though the pin is pulled off from the loops the friction is enough to keep the chicken loop attached and the safety doesn't work.
I tested this yesterday with my two times used Dreambar. I attached the other end to the hook in a ceiling and hung with my hands from the chicken loop. I weigh 78 kilos. I pulled the quick release handle - and nothing happened. The loops stayed attached and didn't release until I turned the chicken loop or helped with my other hand.
I replaced the line loop in the chicken loop side with a bit thinner loop (and also a bit slippery one). Now the release works and doesn't also seem to release accidentally (repeated the hanging test).
Have anyone else had similar problems with the bar?
