How do I reset my safety pin on my chicken loop?

Postby nmlyons24 » Sun May 24, 2009 11:32 pm

Im a new kiter. Had my first water lesson yesterday and my chicken loop safety pin released when I took a spill in the water, I guess it's just sensitive. Anyway, I can't figure out how to reset the safety. I've checked online and my instructor can't be reached. I have a 2008 Best Nemesis HP 12m kite with a Best bar too. Any ideas or anywhere to point me to? Want to get it fixed and working so I can go out tomorrow. Much thanks

Sorry for saying this...... but what kind of fool are you !!!
Is this a joke ???
This has to be part of your instruction or at least read the manual before you go out there with a new kite. You hit the water and you don't have any idea how your gear works. This can cost lives !!!

Anyway.... look at your manuel or at the BEST-site

WTF?
You better study your gear and know how to use it before going out.
You know that people died while kiting, right?
I know you mean no harm, but don't be an idiot.
