Stay Safe.

The adjustment on harnesses uses friction to hold them, I cannot imagine a situation where I would want to LUBRICATE a harness...

Hi, thanks, sorry, I'm aware friction is used to lock the belts, perhaps, lubricate is the wrong word to use, just wanted them to adjust a bit easier, they certainly lock tight when pulled upon,

Clean the harnesses with a little soapy water

Depending on the adjusters, on most road type harnesses, the centre bar of the adjusters is usually floating. Lubricate the interface of the ends of the centre bar where it meets the housing. I was struggling to adjust my harnesses a week or so ago and found this to be the issue as the adjuster was binding in the locked position and pinching the belt. As you pull the buckle up to release, the centre bar should float into the centre position and release the lock on the belt. When you tighten the belt, it pulls the belt wrap into the side of the housing, locking it.

Lubricating the bar to housing also improves its ability to grip the belt when tight.

Don't go mad with goopy oil or graphite powder as it will still need to sit on your clothes. I used some dry PTFE type stuff.

I've used the coarse webbing Luke harnesses in the past though and they were a pig to adjust whatever you did with them so YMMMV.





me? ambivalent? well, yes and no
