YOU should never install that sort of thing yourself. Peter's Paw and others like it are custom sewn into saddles at the New Tribe factory. I'm not saying you can't have one, you can if you order your saddle that way. You should NEVER remove stitching and restitch a harness. That plate is your saddles direct connection to the rope and it's all that will keep you from falling to the ground from a far greater height than you would want to.
Remember too, that having such a device sewn into a saddle disables it's ability to be opened up all the way to put it on over oversize clothing or added layers in colder weather. A saddle with a sewn plate must be donned by sliding it up over the hips rather than placing it around the waste like a belt. This reduces wearing options considerably. It also makes purchasing the saddle a bit more difficult - especially if you are ordering online or over the phone. You must be much more precise about the size you choose.
Definatly! I would never try that myself! I Just watched the video that Tree climbers int. offers and I liked how he has his saddle set up.
Thanks for the Welcome:) !! Im sure to be on here alot more asking more q's! My sister lives in Atlanta and im hoping to get some tree time soon!
