Said to my mates, hey let me test your safety (secretly knew they have never tested them) mate holds the bar, I pull on the loop, pull flappy velcro bit of safety: NO RELEASI - pull on loop like shit - no releasi - and don't look like releasing either. (on both bars)
The safeties are those with velcro with flat hooked metal pin. (won't mention brands to stay out of trouble)
Message, regular forumers are probably bored with this but:
Test your safety under load - if you havent - what are you doing???
Sounds like that tragic death in Spain was on a Masterpiece bar,,,,?
Top rated for safety in that mag article.
I've always thought your pretty much fucked no matter what you test or grab for,,,,A second is just not enough time to do anything.
Hey,,,we all know this already,,
I'd like to see a bit more honesty about the> risk
instead of all this> The risk is manageable Bull Shit.
Just my opinion
