Can you post a shot of your bar starting at the adjuster and above? So we can see how the safety works?
I'm interested in how exactly the leader line connects to the frontline and where the bar stops if you pull the quickrelease.

thanx!

Just step by step
You need Slingshot 2005 chicken loop small or big depending of you and plastic pipe 10*40mm
Safety still 100%

thanks for the pics, but that's not what i wanted to see.
The interesting part for me is the upper part of the bar starting with the depower adjuster, swivel and then connection of "mini 5th" or "leader line" to one frontline.
I also know that's not the part you modified :)

You still need to pull out the pin to release the CL.

The System you have built has major problems releasing under pressure.

Be carefull with that one. Test it under pressure.

You invented an inferior system just because the plastic was hard?

Hi Oleg, respect from Lithuania :bye:

So, I try to explain why I change FULCRUM to classic BIG loop
1 loop to small , hard to hook in and unhook
2 to small space between bar ant read FULCRUM security release, when I do unhook trick my thumb always very hard squeeze to read release, does hurt
3 several time per day FULCRUM security been disconnected after trick
