Aviator bar setup

Recommended Posts

Just got an Aviator bar and lines but no manual. I have set up bars before, but this looks different from what I'm used to. What's going on here...?

I know the front lines attach here, but how..? Don't want to assume anything. Also how do I attach safety line...? Cant find manual on PL website for bar.

I talked to Cheese last night - I don't have one of those bars, but the general idea with that would be to attach 1 front line to the metal pole, and the other front line to the safety (bungie) on the opposite side it is now. His pic is upside down, but when it's pulled tight (when you're flying) it's stopped at the top of the hole and both front lines are even. The question I had for him is if the hole gets smaller in some way at the top to let the bungie and front line in the hole, but stop the bungie from pulling all the way through. On release, the whole mess gets pushed up the front line by the bar. He also has no stopper on his frontline, so I guess it slides all the way to the kite? Would love to hear from someone who has this bar to see if any of this makes sense.

Here's what I mean:

      I had a zipper on my 16m venom 2 give up on me last week. Bloody frustrating, as it was the inflate zipper and I was about to launch 🤬. The slide was so worn out that it won’t close the teeth anymore.
      anyway, I have fitted new waterproof zips to an arc before, but they can be a bit expensive and hard to find. So I thought it was a good chance to test out a Velcro alternative.
      its basically just a short sock and Velcro opening similar to the deflates in the flysurfer kites. 
      the Velcro valves work quite well. I inflated the kite and slowly opened the Velcro. No air was escaping until it opened far enough to for the end of the sock to open.
      Sorry, no pictures before they got sewn in. But a few pointers I worked out for anyone wanting to do this mod.

      -Make the sock width about 50mm more then the zipper opening in the kite.
      - place sticky ripstop inside the kite where the zipper stitching was removed.
      - measure from the opening in the kite to the cell wall, subtract 1cm. This is how long the sock needs to be.
      -sew the sock in the direction you would use it to inflate the kite (pointing towards the centre)
      - sew a deflate valve into the trailing edge to replace the deflate zipper.
