safety leash flexifoil reattachment help

Postby mvb1985 » Fri Jul 01, 2011 9:17 pm

I've got a flexifoil safety leash. Before in case i would really needed to use it I was wondering how the thing worked.
Unfortunately i cant figure out how it should be placed back in the right position. :(

Someone an idea ? In the attachment a picture to make things more clear (hopefully)

Number 1 is the pin.
Number 2 is the white loop
Number 3 is a small black tunnel

Number 4 is again a white loop of the second part of the leas
Number 5 is a bigger black tunnel

Hope someone can help me out with this.

Thank you in advance.

Haha this took me forever to figure out, it's gotta be one of the most needlessly complex safety systems there is.

Basically the loop that's not attached to the pin goes through the other loop, then the pin goes through both of them.

Good luck, it's pretty physically difficult to do :p
