Hi Crew,
After having a little injury on my thumb twice I adjusted the adjuster on the stopper. It is just a bit too sharp and when on max stopping force it sticks out a bit. And when i slide the stopper with my hand my thumb gets injured (its like a knife in wet and soft skin)
I’ve just sanded the edges a bit and it feels a lot better know.
Regards,
Arjan

can someone clarify, the old stopper.. the one before this one. is it just two holes drilled straight through some plastic, and the fact they are spaced means that when the bar gets close it pinches the rope together thus holding it in place?

just wanting to know as i plan to make one due to my old punch up stopper really getting on my nerves slipping up and down the lines the hole time.
