I thought I was increasing safety by attaching my leash under my spreader bar so that it was right there "dead" center.  It's been there for three years.  But when I came in the other day, I was standing in knee high water and went to release my QR and it got hung up on the leash, which was somewhat wrapped around my spreader bar.  It scared the hell out of me in the immediate sense and also what potentially could have happened had I needed it in an emergency. I have moved the leash to a fixed point on the side of my Nitrous harness shorts but still wonder if this could still happen, has ever happened to anyone or can be completely avoided?

Leash on the side, absolutely. Never on front or back. Do a search on "Got dragged by kite and almost drowned" on the forum for details.
