Maybe these aren’t for kitesurfing, like a sailboat could use them.

No joke
But fun to joke about now.


Ancient news from when we aspired to Dead-Man tricks. Sheet cleat. Cabrinha Powerlock. Fixed harness line. Circa 2002

look in the corner of the drawing - its dated Jul 2005. In that era the cabrinha bar had a "hook" feature that would hold them fully powered. Not sure about other bars. I made a half-hearted attempt to kite back in 2005 and ended up waiting till 2009 when things had matured a bit.
This was an early clamcleat thought.
