Not sure how helpful this is. There are some screws you can remove, which presumably exposes the rope. I don't really feel like disassembling it that much, but I can if necessary, I guess.

Thanks, I assume it just unscrews the plastic off the pad, hopefully they did a better job than ion, the screws in the back of the ion spreader bar is just for the hook, you have to dig in between the rubber and plastic on top with a needle nose plier and tie a knot with the tips of your fingers, awful design

If you are curious and do take it apart let me know, don’t want to bother too much thou

I like how they added the second rope in the middle!

Ok, took it apart. It looks pretty straightforward. Each rope is mounted on a different part inside.

I removed the rubber pad at the back of my ION rope spreader bar...... Closer Fit, Less upward leverage from Kite, still comfortable as force is pulling not pushing, obviously, and more importantly.... easy access to change/replace or adjust slider rope.
