wish edt” posted that pic sooner.. now understand how simple it is...definitely doing that on second bar :thumb: that be fine to do on regular kite line ? Or just that 3mm Dyneema? Does the line diameter matter or no :?:
You don't want to do this if the stopper ball itself carries load. If it carries load then you need to end the line with a lark's head and lark's head it as discussed previously. This is just for stopping the control bar from shooting up more than 10 meters up towards the kite after the QR is pulled.

I thought about using a simple knot but that would reduce the breaking load seriously.
Would this work for you ?...it's from from Peter Lynn kite parts
Looks like it would clamp on tight on a front line without weakening or damaging it

That might work. I could clamp it on the safety line and thereby not put any stress on the front line. Thanks!
I also found this:

It should also work. I may end up building something like this on my own. Since it is just a stopper with no critical function any part will do.

Could also do this... then attach safety line to the ring or use ring as stopper... :thumb: Very simple ...

Yes, that also works.
I don't like the cutting of the line, the additional splices and yet another ring. But if you like to switch up the line lengths anyway this may be just right.
