Four buckles, two straps and one velcro are used to attach the airbag onto the harness Flip the harness over Locate the four attachment loops, and “button” the plastic sliders into the loops Connect the two side attachment loops to the outsides of the leg straps Connect the velcro to the leg spread adjuster strap Optional Reserve attachment: Using a pair of Light Universal Bridles First connect the small loops to the shoulders Larks-head knot the bridles to the shoulder attachments Then attach both bridles to the reserve with one larks-head knot Ensuring you tighten the knots well Then attach the external container to the side of the harness One loop to the carabiner, The second to the back support strap on the side of the harness Route the bridles through the velcro attachments Tidy the remainder of the bridle into the container Connecting the Speed System Attach the two optional ballbearing pulleys to the loops on the harness Pass the loop through the pulley, and then pass the pulley through the loop Do this on both sides Routing the Speed System Line: First pass the line through the eyelet on the front of the leg loops, then through the installed pulley on the side of the harness Finally, replace the Cord-lock and Brummell-hook on the line Repeat on the other side Fitting the Harness: First put your legs through the leg loops then pass your arms through the shoulder straps Don’t forget the close the chest strap buckle!
