What year bar do you have? The older trimlites got stuck like that, the newer ones have a piece of black webbing sewn in to prevent the trim line from getting pulled in too far.pākihiroa wrote: ↑Tue Jul 07, 2020 4:39 pmI posted about this in a different thread (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2404829&p=1102269#p1102269) but never got any comments so I will try again here:
I find on my trimlite that if I trim out all the way for maximum depower (ie: pull full in on the bungee), then the termination (thick) part of the bungee can get jammed in the metal part where it loops up and around. The procedure then is to drop the kite, apply a few choice swear words, and use two hands to jiggle the bungee free. I am not sure if this is due to :
(1) A design error. (I kinda doubt it because I have not seen anyone else complain about it on kiteforum.)
(2) A manufacturing defect peculiar to my particular bar.
(3) An operator error on my part.
Even though I know this can happen and try to avoid it, I still sometimes get it in the jammed state. When it is already close to jamming, having to pull the handle in slightly to free the bungee from the cleat doesn't help.
I would be interested in any advice......
