Re: Fastek buckles
Posted by LeeG on Jul 30, 2005
The only way they can work is to pre-adjust the length of the webbing on the buckle then press the buckles together with max pressure to closure using two hands pressing on either side of the buckle using thumbs and forefinger/middle finger. You can't buckle then tighten as you would a back pack waist buckle by pulling on a loose end to tighten the strap. But as you mention some folks don't have that finger strength,,especially with cold tired hands. This can be critical for the aft hatch to have all three straps at max tension to provide sufficient down force.
