Nice one Toby! :thumb:
Do you have some extra security to prevent slipping the hook from the loop when doing the deadman?

I never had the chickenloop go off with that move or any upside down trick. But, maybe with certain harness hooks it could happen. But I had quiet some different ones in 10 years, and never a problem.

Probably just being paranoid about the stopper ball and the possibility of it being all the way out! ha ha.

Gotta love it when you forget to pull it in and you drop out of the sky like a rock!
