    This clip is from 2 years ago. The retention hooks were too light and since a modified them so they can't rotate like that. I also offered and will still replace any that don't have the nub at the top to prevent them from rotating.

    It was the first time I had used them. I had to change the suspension on my new BB to cinch buckles, that means changing straps because those cool lightweight thin straps that come on the BB slip in the cinch buckles I buy. So I put on a new pair. I had a few in my personal stock.

    Thanks to all who report when their butts hit whatever happens to be under them! Knowing about the failures is as helpful as hearing about the successes.
