The tending can be a challenge using a fixed point if your form isn't spot on. On an 4SRT harness, depending on the length of the rope bridge, relative height of the connection point, position, and angle of the tending carabiner, the outcomes varies. Using a higher chest connection on a 4SRT harness is a good start, but using an adjustible neck teather or a Petzl Torse (Croll Harness) is my preference. Being able to loosen and tighten the tension of the tending carabiner helps mitigate a lot of unwanted pop outs.This is the intended operation of the tending point.. the way it works with the DMM XSRE is exactly how its supposed to work. It will tend the device up, but once you lean back and down it is designed with an outward gate to automatically disconnect.
