Just got this from Naish
In an effort to improve the quality and safety of our kite products, we have developed a NEW Quick Release Handle for the Safety Leashes that were sold with our kites before 2005 models (Torch and Raven).
The NEW Quick Release Handle was designed to prevent injury in the event the rider grabs the bungee leash by hand.
The NEW Quick Release Handle is easy to replace simply by pulling the old handle through the top of the bungee cord, and sliding the new handle down into position. The attached photos will guide you through this easy process. Once the safety leash has been modified, you should check the system to make sure everything is correctly seated in order for proper operation.
The NEW Quick Release Handle is available at your local Naish dealer at no charge.
See you on the water,
