Riser collapse/drawstrings? Can't Post

Who makes the risers that collapse with the two pull drawstrings?

Thanks

Are you sure "risers" is what you're asking about, or is it "slider"?

I would imagine that most, if not all, of the manufacturers make collapsible sliders.

Wow...its been a long day. I even took a second to proof read it. Clearly, not.

YES! I meant The drawstring slider.

I haven't been in the sport long enough to really answer the actual question that you asked but when I read it, I thought you must've meant slider.
Someone is bound to jump in here soon and give you a far more intelligent answer than my generic "most, if not all" answer.

But, seriously, if you already have your own rig, have you checked with your canopy manufacturer yet?
