Cabrinha IDS bar modification

Postby Caesar » Thu Mar 18, 2010 8:43 am


I'm thinking of modifying my IDS bar to make deadmans (having the bar fully powered without hanging onto the bar).
North bars have hooks as does Core bars (and I'm sure some other brands have them too).
Is there any simple solution to get it done?
Have you seen it or done it on your bar?
Thanks for any tips.

Use a North bar and set the stopper where you want it to hold the bar.

In the old days, some people did get injured or killed because they couldn't release from their harness line, so a Q/R type might be worth fitting.
