Pro Limit pin release spreader
- Anyone else notice that Pro-limit has a new item listed under the
kite harness section, titled a spreader bar release system that
they say has been the standard for a year now???
"In one year our Pin Release Spreader has established itself as
the easiest to use and most robust Quick Release system on
the market today. All stainless steel components make it
"bombproof" and engaging and releasing the spreader takes a
push or a pull, its really that simple"
I recall a lot of discussion here (some instigated by myslef)
about "wouldn't it be awesome if a spreader bar release was
available commercially...". Does any one know if this is the
anticipated new product.? (Lots of discussion in the past about
it coming soon...) One other thing, if it is new why is it an
industry standard (for a year??). Other Q's come to mind, is it
now standard on the harness? can it be retrofitted to
others????? Info from ProLimit would be great, or others who
are in the know? Check out this address for the horses mouth
Disregard first posting, it turns out to be the mechanism of
releasing the bar on the harness, not for the attachment of the
kite, If you care to look, the graphic on thier web page makes this
clear, and was something I did not look at closely enough the
first time... I guess we wait for the real kite release system.

Safety" spreader would be out around February (it's already on their parts
list, although the price is TBA).
