Security cap allows safe operation of the Paralock

A security cap over the release button reliably prevents the Paralock from being opened unintentionally. The protective cap is attached to the screw at the belt chamber with a heavy-duty nylon wire and can be easily clipped on and off again. The opening of the Paralock is still possible without difficulty even with gloves, and is only slightly delayed (see video).
The security cap weighs only 4 g and can be easily installed. When used with the security cap, the airworthiness of the Paralock is given. For customers who have not yet returned the Paralock due to our recall, we will send the caps free of charge upon request.

PARALOCK pre-series recalled

Separation carabinerIt turned out that with the current Paralock pre-series version, unintentional unlocking and opening of the lever is possible. This means that the airworthiness is no longer guaranteed.

Pilots have not come to any harm. 

We will refund the purchase price as well as the costs of the return transport.
We have informed all customers accordingly.



Tom Grabner's solution of unlocking the lever by means of a push-button principally involves the possibility that the push-button can be accidentally pushed open with a greater or lesser probability - depending on how protected the push button is positioned inside the handle of the lever. We have therefore decided to realize an improved system, which has already been worked out in detail. However, the realization will still take some time.

In the short term, we can also offer to install the push button deeper inside the handle in the pre-series model. The use of this version is then at your own risk. Pilots who want to test the modified pre-series version can contact us by e-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and purchase a pair at the price of 156 €. There is an extended 4-week return policy.

New tests performed for opening safety of the DIAMONDcross

dc-news-1200Already during the development of the DIAMONDcross, the topic "entanglement of the rescue system with the main glider" was crucial for diverse product details, which have been certified with additional tests far above certification criteria during the summer.

The most dangerous situations for a rescue system becoming entangled with the main glider are SAT-like rotations after tangling up. This was simulated by holding collapses.

Paralock: Will an improved Quick-Out be available soon?

info-buttonFor about a year, the Finsterwalder & Charly development team has been working on a lightweight carabiner that, similar to the Quick-Out, allows the paraglider to be disconnected after a reserve parachute deployment. This project under the name „Paralock" is now so advanced that already a pre-series of 100 pieces has been ordered.
