to all SurfNut users, I use this device all the time, and I really like it. However it has a few issues that need to be clear:
1). the first clasps may not fully close, which could release the ring holding the urethane leash.
2). the urethane leash will snap if subjected to a massive load. usually this is from larger boards, and twin tips (which the leash attachment in the center). in a way, this is good, since you dont what to have a situation where it doesnt break. under normal circumstances the leash is fine.
3). unit can bind up if the screw is tight. the surfnut is supposed to be loose, so it can move with relation to the board/harness.
sand can also make it bind. a thorough rinse
of water, while pulling the line in/out, will clear it.
