    WB straps fraying?

    I took my WB traveler out for the first hang today. When I was adjusting it I noticed that the triangle buckle is digging into the strap enough to fray it. I've got the beginnings of a few gouges and one place were it tore right into the strap and frayed it. Have you guys had any issues like this? I'll post some pics tomorrow when it's light out.

    One thing that comes to mind: The tri-rings do have a seam where the metal bar is welded to itself (I hope that description makes sense) When I received my WB, I noticed that these seams were on the side of the tri-rings that was not being used to cinch the webbing. In other words, if the amsteel line is connected to one corner, and the webbing is being cinched by the flat side of the triangle directly opposite that corner, the seams (which are pretty noticable) are on the sides of the tri-rings between the amsteel and the webbing.

    I would therefor check if you can find any seams and/or rough spots on the tri-rings. If you do, just rotate the tri-ring so that the rough side is not being used to cinch the webbing. Depending on how badly the webbing is shredded, you might need to replace it, but at least you won't have to replace the tri-rings as well.

    I also had this problem after some extensive use of my BB. It was caused from the weld on the tri-rings. All I did was rotate the tri-rings so that the weld was not on the strap and I have not had a problem since.
