How to properly adjust your NEWTON harness?
- Carefully read the Instructions for Use used in this technical advice before consulting the advice itself. You must have already read and understood the information in the Instructions for Use to be able to understand this supplementary information.
- Mastering these techniques requires specific training. Work with a professional to confirm your ability to perform these techniques safely and independently before attempting them unsupervised.
- We provide examples of techniques related to your activity. There may be others that we do not describe here.
For optimum comfort and protection, your harness should be properly adjusted, with the attachment points correctly placed.
Follow the donning and setup directions in the harness Instructions for Use. We then provide additional tips to help you get the best possible fit of your harness.
1 - Adjusting the leg loops:
The leg loops should be adjusted, but not too tightly: the user should be able to pass a flat hand between the thigh and the leg loop.
2 - Adjusting the shoulder straps:
- Sternal point position:
The sternal attachment point should be placed at chest level.
3 - Adjusting the dorsal point position:
The dorsal attachment point should be placed between the shoulder blades.
As a general rule, if the suggested adjustments do not allow you to obtain a proper fit, use a different size harness.
