68850Subject: Prolimit harness releasing unintenionally?
- Dec 6, 2004Almost 3 years use from mine.
It only released 2 times and I'm pretty sure of why.
The harness strap buckle adjustment must be loose BEFORE you lock the
release, so that it has a very slight play to ensure a full lock.
This is a common thing, where the harness is tight, fully adjusted, then
after the session you just pop the release without loosening the harness
strap buckle. The problem starts on your next session when putting on the
already adjusted tight harness and just connecting the release. It will
lock, but not fully and then will release under load.
Since I've been only locking the release with a loosely adjusted harness,
I've never had the lock pop since.
