Boys and Girls.
It has come to our attention that there is a potentially annoying issue that can arise with our new 2009 Control Bar Chicken Loops. Please note that 1) this issue is avoidable and 2) if you are afflicted with the condition it is easily treated with Ben Gay and a file.
In the pictures below you will see that when storing your snazzy new bar it is best to leave a little slack for the chicken loop to be folded up against the bar. Those of you who like to keep things tight and then force your chicken loop to lie flat will likely have noticed the issue already.

Photo 2 - The Issue - when collapsed the edge hooks on the inside of the bar and can cause the chicken loop to open when hooking back in after a sick double handle pass to blind. Gnarly dude.
