(Remember that those kook proof connectors are added afterwards, and make the steering lines a bit longer)
Thanks for clarifying about ‘bypassing’ the kook-proof connector section when measuring for equal-length.
I noticed when my red steering lines are taut, my front lines are drooping quite a bit.
I ended up placing both of my steering lines on the last knot (as found underneath each foam floater)
I also had to move the front line ‘figure of 8’ knots closer to the ‘mickey mouse.’
Here’s how I went about it…
After removing my keys from my D-shaped carabiner,
I hooked it to the valve stem of the outdoor water spigot on the side of the house.
Then I placed all 4 of the ‘loops’ (as found at the end of each line)
onto the carabiner (bypassing the ‘kook-proof length’ with the 2 knots)
While I ended-up missing a possible post-work session tonight,
I’m certain that I’ll be rewarded with a much improved kiting experience for my efforts.
