Make sure you're feeding the webbing correctly: it should loop around the bar
which is SECOND from the end. The thinner, weaker end bar is just there to
go over the top of both parts of the loop, I guess it helps the teeth dig in
on the other end when tension is applied.
You probably weigh more, since I'm only 63kg, but that shouldn't matter,
since Todd's closer to 100kg & he hasn't reported any breakage (his backup
only takes load AFTER the Superloc breaks).
- I'm not using a ladder lock ! I use a super lock buckle from westmarine had
the same one on now for 5months with no problems.
