Yes, the spreader bar stayed attached to one side but with gloves on I was unable to put the harness back together with the kite flying and attached. Kind of a PITA. I'll check out Mystic.dyyylan wrote:Yeah the same thing happened with my dakine renegade after 2 years or so, started popping off when I would ride toeside. Luckily the hold-down strap that goes through the spreader bar kept the kite from flying away.
I ended up getting a mystic harness, won't ever have this problem with the clickerbar.
Yep, it's not a huge deal, I always just sat down in the water and used a little muscle to get it hooked in again, definitely something i worried about though every time i went toesideWilliam Munney wrote:

Can you show a picture of the locking device -William Munney wrote:I have a Cabrinha harness that's a couple of years old that has started to spontaneously release while kiting toeside- is this typical? The harness is still in good shape overall and there is no sand in the mechanism. It is also fully engaged at the start of the session.
I see that they sell the spreader bar part for $68. But I think I will use an old Cabrinha spreader bar with no quick release as the webbing on the newer harness seems to be the same.Peter_Frank wrote:Aaah, yes, now I understand.
I havent used that model myself, but I think you are right - it can be prone to self releasing when it gets "softer" especially
Maybe others got a hint how to fix/prevent this ?
