The "pilgrim's hats/witche's hats" slider stops that come with the PD Slinks don't always stop the slider from coming down over the softlink.
Does anyone have a idea or know of a product which is commercially availablle that would stop the slider every time? Esp on rear risers?
(I guess I could get the oversized silicone rubber or plastic tube ones, and hand tack, or something like that... I've never seen that tried w soft links - just musing here. Or may just go to wide risers - more musing)
Rather than trying to be creative - I'd rather buy a product that is commercially available and stops that slider every time. I have a stiletto with standard(pretty big) slider grommets. Nothing unusual
I once saw a set of them put on upside down and when I questioned the owner about it he said that it worked better at keeping the slider from coming down over the soft link. I have no idea if that is actually true or not or if it would work in your situation but I thought I'd throw it out there for your to try and decide for yourself.
Lou D Thanks. Actually, when the slider does come over the stop, and I pull the slider back up, it becomes inverted anyway. Same diff.
I actually solved the problem on my second rig, demo jump rig, a Vector II with wide risers. I put them on the wide risers, (they don't fit for shit), and they just make a kind of black wrinkled bundle, and they work fine. Slider never goes over that.
I just wondered if there was a better performing commercial/ manufactured mfg product for the modern type 17 risers. Like all riggers, I can invent stuff, but rather buy something better if it is out there and someone else has put it thru testing by use.
