Pass the bar through the center lines to undo the inside out lines. I usually end up with 2 or 3 twists in my bar, but it only takes about 10 seconds to figure out which way to pass the bar and fix it.lawnmower wrote:I see people who do this - pack without disconnecting. My fear is passing the bar over a line which will mess them up.
Because it only takes about 20 seconds to attach your linesWildDuke wrote:Toby brought up an interesting point in his thread relating to pet peeves, and that was leaving lines attached to the kite when packing away. I only have one kite and one bar and I remove the lines every time, basically because I have never come across anyone who doesn't. Does anybody else do this? It certainly makes sense!
Interesting point, I never thought of that. I always wind my lines onto the bar so I don't take up more space than necessary on our crowded beach (my pet peeve) and don't risk people launching with their lines tangled around mine (seen it too many times) but if my kite got lofted, I bet the bungies would give out and send the bar flailing around anyway.BWD wrote:The problem is if you never unhook the lines, almost inevitably at some point,
you are going to have the danger of an unattended kite sitting on the ground, pumped up with lines attached.
