      I wouldn't have thought seatbelt buckles would release easily under high
      load, but I guess you've tested that (?).

      The "panic button" looks like it may be a little TOO easy to activate for
      some (activated accidentally?), but it looks like it would work with just
      the stock button.

      Believe it or not, a lot of riders still haven't switched to ARCs yet ;-)
      so you might want to make it possible to leave the Reactor roller on.

      Tapping* makes for a cleaner installation, but for a "do-it-yourself" home
      kit you might consider nuts (& slightly longer bolts) although it looks like
      your plate is thicker than the Reactor's, so it might be better to just tap
      your plate anyway, & put the bolt heads on the bottom. For the NON
      do-it-yourself types you might consider selling the spreader complete,
      already assembled.
      *I'd think that anybody who's into tapping would likely have their own

      I wouldn't spend too much on tooling, marketing, or whatever yet, since the
      ProLimit model will be available soon.
