I messed with mine, pulled and tugged and it seems solid. But until they fully address it I am keeping it in the box.

Ok my hand strap had this issue. Basically what it is, is the metal part that pushes the anchor into the lock and keeps it secure isn't fully inserted into it's groove. I popped mine into place, and it popped out once. I'll definatley keep it in the box until this issue is resolved. Ok it popped out again, So once you secure the puck into it's spot, if I put a little pressure on the puck it falls out through the back.

The little curve that should be seated into it's base to secure itself is not to curved causing it to pop out. In my opinion both pieces should have been made of metal.

The slide seems fine though. Now that I've seen the flaw I can't stop thinking about it.

just got my Clutch as well the other day. was definitely expecting it later in the month at the earliest!!

i gotta say though, it isnt as snug as i thought it was. when i put my hand through, and pull the strap to tighten, it gets to a point where it doesnt go anymore, but it feels loose! anyone experience this?

Try adjusting the strap itself. Push the pad down towards the anchor. You'll see that there is more strap near the anchor and the top is at it's point where it can't go any further.

took a look at home. mine def has the issue. looks like where the metal piece is bent is a bit short for the plastic bracket, so if i pop it back in and push the metal clip "forward", that is toward the rounded end, it stays secure.

will wait to see what kind of fix they offer, but might just epoxy it in place

here is what i mean by pushed back or forward

1. the metal spring is pushed backward. notice no gap between the strap and the metal spring. in this position, pressing down on the spring will pop it out

2. the metal spring is pushed forward so that the metal "tooth" is caught on the plastic, and it stays in place when pushed down all the way. note that there is a gap between the metal spring and the strap. the metal "tooth" is well engaged

Yea it's not a complete loss, they just have to replace the defective part.

My Slide doesn't appear to have the issue but man is it a bear to get the anchor off the housing, it really takes some doing. My Leash is much easier in that respect, although it does not give me the positive locking click sound that the Slide does.


Cheers,
Laurent
