And as we are some who simply hates a bar that is not fixed (a sliding or tilting spreader bar), this is not an option, eventhough the stress might be less.
Unfortunately I dont think there is much to do about this risk
I Understand you Peter ; sorry i came on so strong !
It's just that i happen to be the Unluckiest person on this forum ; soon
or later, the kite that takes me out next, may wrap one of it's top-lines
around my neck. Then i won't be worrying about a prosthetic falling off any-longer
i'll be Dead !!
Seriously -- i already do enough sh*t that should kill me, Don't need any
help from an engineer that exemplifies the epitome of ineptitude, and can't grasp
something as simple as a spreader-bar and it's applied stress,
that won't hold up to the design criteria because There Too Stupid to make it
stronger in a way that relieves the stress !!
They "Do" sell more of them that way though.
Here-- try This Mr engineer :
The spreader BAR, has a hole in it that the hook can be placed through instead
of being welded.
encompass the part of the hook that goes Through the spreader with a thick
rubber, ( the type found on an engine mount) to relieve the stress, & tighten it down
with a bolt
A Bolt that's Stronger than the one Sling-Shot used on the spreader/release-hook they made
when my 15M Ozone got destroyed because it broke. Yea the safety Leash was
attached to the bolt that broke !! Another GREAT design ; makes me wanna just Rush right out and
purchase another Sling Shot Product --------------------------------------------NOT !!!
As for ME -- i'm quite Happy with my V-7 , Thank You !!
