    SENA SMH10 Troubleshooting

    Skip the Velcro. I use a dab of ShoeGoo and clamp overnight. It will not come off unless you cut it off.

    SENA SMH10 Troubleshooting

    Grease. Just a touch. The spray may work better. Just make sure the holes are dry. I used a heat gun on both ends first.

    SENA SMH10 Troubleshooting

    The crackling is from moisture at the mic connection. A little dielectric silicone goes a long way! As far as the non communication, try updating them or even resetting them. If someone gets pissy and hits the button too many times, it can really throw things out of whack.

    Where to put your lanyard when negative rigging?

    If you have a rookie roper, tie in under your rigging sling. Since my experience, although I was not hurt, I will always tie in under. I'd rather take a ride at the top and/or have my lanyard pinched once in a while, than take a ride to the ground.

    Wraptor soon to be unavailable

    I think too many would use them as a work platform if they were reversible. This could lead to more falls from line cutting. I know I do not tie in twice while on the Wraptor. Although I only cut what's in my way.

    Wraptor soon to be unavailable

    Bring your friction saver up with you and attach it when you get there. That will bring your hitch closer to the unit. Make up a carrier like for a roll of tape on an electricians belt.
