    Use the search function on the top of the forum page. Type in "roll cage" and you will have lots of reading to do without having to wait for replies. Also in the tech articles forum there is a good thread on roll cages.

    Good to hear knowbody was hurt, but why is there 5 points with no cage??? Where did you tie into to mount 5 points??? That is scary in itself.

    if you have the skillz to fab, but no good design ideas, i highly recommend checking out trusty's cage. Its pretty much the most looked-at pic on ck5, and for good reason.

    AFA 5 points with no cage... in a low speed flop/roll, its prolly fine... but for anything extreme (multiple rolls, endo, high speed junk) you'll want the harness's shoulder straps mounted between 0-4" below the person's shoulder... otherwise you risk spine compression... never good.
