Yesterday at our lake one of the guys had adjustable harness lines
with the plastic toggle to make shortening them easier. He fell and
the toggle went between the bars at the back of his harness hook and
then twisted as it went up toward the hook. It took him a minute or
so before he could release it. Luckey for him that he was on top of
his sail and not under it.
The fix was easy. Duck tape over the wide opening on the hook so the
toggle win't fit through.
It is no problem with a reactor bar because the hook is a solid peice

I switched to Prolimit and solved both problems. I believe North now
uses the same design.
Glenn I disagree.
No harness in the world takes longer than 10sec to remove. Anyone can hold
their breath for 30sec.
They key is to be prepared mentally and when you fall in and can't get free
just take the harness off same as you do in the carpark
I was wondering about this. The only Dakine harness I have is an
impact vest so I tried it out on the water today, 2 seconds and the
bar was released. I was a bit surprised how easy the buckle came
undone. Strange thing is I tried to release the opposite side and had
a hard time doing it. I took both sides off and found the webbing was
threaded thrugh the clip backwards on the difficult side.
