Re: [JohnSherman] To RSL or not to RSL

Hi John,

Quote:
This configuration was almost guaranteed to knock some teeth out when used.

The first documented use of a Stevens Lanyard was about '65-'66, a student. He did not lose any teeth but he did have a serious black eye.

Quote:
Piggy backs came out and the Stevens system was adapted cross connectors and all.

Security's CrossBow system never used any cross-connector.

You can check with the designer:
