Hello Tomas,

Thank you for sending along the article. I am working with the image files to be able to link them to kiteforum.com and have them readily readable.

In the meantime I have uploaded the two image files to:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/kitesurf/ ... EFERENCES/

under:
2. QR Testing Article

The article is of course in German. Hopefully I will be able to link to something with larger print on this site soon.

Rick Iossi

Here are the pics of my Pin & Tube QR.
Is a part of a spinning leash bar that I have posted before.

http://homepage.mac.com/hernanhome/PhotoAlbum2.html

The QR is much easier to find and release than a shackle. It is symetrical so its always in the same relative position to the rider.

I agree that It is not so easy to rig. You need the right parts and some patience, but it worth the effort.

NOTE:
How do you do to show pics inside the message body??

pics to appear in your message?
you have to put the URL of the pic inbetween the img tags:

Well, I really prefer a safety system a la whichard where all your important hardware is attached to your harness and you don't need to fiddle around with to many pins and do on..
just imagine beeing somewhere out in the ocean trying to put all your "complicated" safety system parts together!

Andreas:

Thanks for the info about images.

About my QR, you have the same number of releases as usual, one for the bar and other for the leash.
In fact, with this system you need only one move to get in or out.

I agree that a shackle could be easier to reattach on the water. With mine you can do it too. With Wipika or Naish systems, forget it.

The "complicated" thing about releases is not founding the release when you need it. The standard rope release of the SShackles is not designed for kiting. They are usually relased in a controlled situation. When you are dragged at full speed, blinded by the water shooting in your face, is very unlikely to found that little swivelling release rope in your shackle.

Here is where a simplier release trigger could made the difference.

Hi Rick, hi everybody,

I have a pin quick release since july 2002 on my wipika bar. After reading a test at a german kitesurfing magazine a tested my/this system under the greatest uplift I could produce in order too see if it releases under pressure. I had no need to use the quick release it in reallity beacause I never got in a dangerous situation so this test was important for my security.

I could release the pin quick release with some effort, I found it too hard for kiters with less power , women for example. I decided to put lots of oil on the pin and around so it would release easier. It worked well. I put oil on it every time before I start. It is part of my starting procedure.

Greetings Sylt Rider
