if you mean the part that goes around the endcap thats eazy and can be done out on the field if you have a problem you can fix it so your day is not over..

1 take the loop on the end of the bridle thats not hooke up to the kite

2 make sure the end cap is disconected

3 slide the loop therught the cap go around the top and pull like a lkarks head and your done its that simple

let me know if you have a problem it should work though

The red line going out of the picture to the left is the one to your flying lines.
Hope you can figure it out.

Wow I was there Friday late afternoon I must have just missed you. I did see them down there they come now and then I was helping them fly the Vented Super Sonic for awhile before I broke out the 1.5 Vented with Ultra Light Rods when the wind went down to 3-5 and they couldn't keep the EXP up lol. (they were horrified)

Anyhow I fly there pretty much daily weather permitting Guaranteed Sunday afternoon after 1-1:30 with my sons any other time if you think you wanna go I'll gladly help you all I can. Let me know and I can PM you my number and set up a day.
