Nice George, glad that worked for you. Once thing to make sure of, if you haven't already, with the new system is to still do the majority of your adjustment with the straps on the back of the backband. When you are fully snug in your boat (backband tight) you want the rachet to be about halfway down the teeth, in other words not at the extreme ends. This will give you more range and help prolong the life of the system. Have fun paddling!
