Back-up tether for tour-pak lid
« on: August 21, 2014, 06:36:06 AM »
A while back the tether for my tour-pak lid became "fizzle-sprung" and came loose. Of course, the lid swung completely open about 240 degrees past closed. Bent the hinges, but didn't damage the tour-pak. <insert photo of me wiping forehead in relief> In an effort to avoid that scenario again, I bought a length of chain similar to the stuff with which you hang floures...flurouc...flouresc...those light fixtures with 4' long tubes in 'em. Dinked around with some nuts and bolts until I had the proper way to attach the aforementioned chain. It is a system completely independent of the original tether. It would be the envy of the people who work in the Department of Redundancy Department. Should the first tether break again, the chain will stop if from going any farther.
