stress on sliders

Recommended Posts

I am making a removable slider, and want to do a pull test on the rings before i hook it up. I was wondering if anyone knows how much force is put on the grommets on opening. In other words, if I put the slider all together and hang one corner from a hook how much weight should I be able to put on the oppisite side? Or is this even neccesary?

Just copy any proven slider design on the market.

Stitch for stitch, same for the material, tape, webbing, grommet depth compression setting.

Do your home work first.

You'll be fine. And it wouldn't hurt to have a few riggers inspect (pick it apart) also.

What are friends for? :)

thanks, that is pretty much the plan. I just like to know the little odd things. Also nobody at my dz has a removable slider so I don't have one to compare to and good pics seem to be hard to come by :(. The only really good one I've seen is by deepseed but I dont like the tape and groomet so I was planning on changing it to a ring and webbing. Overall it seems to be pretty straight forward so it shouldn't to much of a problem.
