I never thought of this when I watched the video but it is a valid point. Especially since Flow's did have an issue with snow pack forcing the ratchets tighter.

Another point of possible failure. Freezing up?? Is it possible for snow to pack in that lever area and 'not' allow it to release.

Thoughts from a fellow Flow user, 4 pairs under my belt. No industry experience just a fellow end-user like Donutz and many others. Doesn't mean our points are any less valid than those with a much greater experience though.
