Big Steve Posted July 29, 2008 Share Posted July 29, 2008 Al Wick asked to post this so everyone could see it. Steve Bunch of little cool things about this design: 1) Not shown, but microswitch placed behind cam is only tripped if canopy is actually latched. So no false trigger is possible. 2) The springs hold cams below flush, so no more ripped pants. 3) Just before opening latch, spring load approaches infinity (well, you know...sorta). So little risk of opening under pressure. 4) I can close canopy with it un cammed (unlatched). That allows me to use car trunk latch to lock canopy at night. Note that wide area washer at seat back. That's essential, as seat back is pretty flimsy.
