progressive BRAKE: construction details

The D- Ring at A11, C 11 or B11

The D-ring is home made of 1mm welding rod (used to weld stainless steel) The D-ring has to be smooth since the bridle line has to slide over it as good as possible. The connection to he sail must be rotation proof. In this case I used the existing bridle point. If the D ring is allowed to rotate Bridle 11 will get entangled.
