I have an older WM tether with Wichard clips, the split rings are welded. I have used other tethers in which the split rings are deforming.
I cgot the recall
as I was packing for a delivery
from Maui to Vancouver. I have both the old tether and a new one, which will be returned when I get back.
Yes I always carry a knife.
