edit: or is that picture very misleading - is it just the metal bit for 30usd or the whole mechanism?
The picture is misleading - it is only the chicken loop replacement for $30 (not the entire quick release).

What size rings are folks using? I ordered a 21 last week (will take a while to get here).

Perhaps I'm missed the start of this topic, but I just put the chicken loop around the rope. Works fine. What is the problem? Wouldn't the RE bar come with a slider if they thought it would be needed?

^
friction is the issue. The CL is not designed for so much friction.

I have tried 3 or 4 different rings for my rope spreader bar and after 4 years I think the best is the "Antal" ring.
Almost never (1 in a 100 crash) comes out out from under the CL and if so, it's easy to pop it back on the go.
I guess getting the right size is important...
I use the one on the photo with the standard Fone CL

cheers

This is what I use. It is a 6mm stainless steel shackle onto which is welded a 25mm x 5mm stainless steel round ring. The wheel is the same as the original Jaystore Dynabar pulley wheel. Any size ring could be welded onto the shackle but I find 25mm (1") works fine. Virtually no rope wear of course.
