Bill Morris –
These are the redtwist lock type Krabs 40mm, slightly thicker than the yellow 30mm ones, usually buy sizes just rated on the hang point space in the risers, so remember to check this. They have fitted at the hangpoint for every harness I have used and the risers fit the top well, never had them rotate on me. The twist and lock procedure is obvious and easy, you can do it with gloves on. Once locked nothing will press them in so ignore the legends and they are also easy to undo. Good piece of kit and recommended as well as the usual UK Airsports fast and efficient delivery. 5 Stars (Who in Gods name would buy a 4 star Krab?? 🙂
