BEST 2009 Chicken Loop Safety Notice

26 September 2008 | 9:19 am

2009 Best Chicken Loop Update:

1. To check the safe function of the QR push up on the external cuff, if the QR opens the bar is functioning correctly.
2. If the QR fails to open, insert a flat edge screwdriver in between the internal and external parts of the Chickenloop cuff and twist it sideways to separate the two parts. Turn the chickenloop over and repeat on the opposite side.
3. Push the cuff to open the QR, if the cuff opens you have successfully fixed the QR, if it fails to open repeat stage 2 using a little more force.
4. As an extra safety measure any excess glue on the internal body of the Chickenloop, as shown below, should be removed by scalping it off with a flat blade.
