I got a Switch bar with no lines and need to see how the set up is for the lines from the center swivel. I tried it one way and it was a mistake, my kite flew terrible so, am guessing that is the wrong way.

I just need to see how the front lines attach to the swivel and safety line if anyone could show a photo.

Thanks

check out these videos and see if they give you the info you need. If they don't, let me know and I will take some pics of mine.

I think this might be what you're looking for?

One of the lines on the swivel goes through it, the other is attached on the top ring.

I just realized you have to click on the manual tab on that page then scroll down and there are a bunch of videos.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the info. After googling around bit, I did find those videos.

Dern, your last shot of the swivel is what I needed. It's the pass through that is giving me my trouble. I don't have any type of stop on the bottom of the line and therefore, when I was de-powering, the safety line was passing right through and was longer than the other front line.

Much appreciated.
