Then you show a pic of someone else's bar (you found a pic of) that is cracked. Which yours is not. You checked with your shop and though I am not sure, but it sounds like your shop did not think to warrantee it. (maybe I am wrong) If it was a big deal to you, I would have had it replaced at no charge even if SS didn't. You asked if anyone else had this problem (bent) and I replied "yes" but have not had a single one break since this design came out. Your second pic shows the bent piece but it is not broken and by any means changeing the way it releases or is able to reset the safety.
If there is a chance that you may not like the answer then don't ask. Credibility has to do with honesty and but I am not sure that's what your looking for!
Your credibility ? You have seen the two pics and then say 'there is no problem? 'Jeez. Unlike you, I do not make money selling Slingshot so have nothing to be defensive about. Mine has bent as you can see. On my other little used bar, it's also bending. I was a little concerned that a safety should "bend' therefore weakening it. I posted, because the shop said they 'have sold over 200 bars and never heard of this problem', which is weird, as both of mine had this problem, and I'm not that unlucky. I saw the pic of a cracked one, as posted, and was now worried my would do the same. This is not the only pic I have found where it has cracked after bending. It's reasonable to think, that if it has bent, it weakens it, and it would then lead to it cracking.I do not take your stance of 'there is no problem' The pics show there clearly IS. If it's not a design fault as you maintain, how come yours has bent too ? My shop did replace it out of courtesy when I mailed them a pic of mine, but my concern is, what's to stop it doing it again, since I still think the design is at fault.
