    From DSS:
    "
    [TABLE="width: 357"]
    [TR]
    [TD] Glide Harness Adapter w 2 1/4 x 20 x 3/8 BHA & 2 nuts

    Permits On the Fly adjustment of single piece Hogarthian Harnesses.

    The DSS Glide Harness Adapter Bolts onto any DSS Stainless Steel Back plate.

    Compatible with DSS bolt on weight plates (with optional 1/4 x 20 x 1/2 Button Head Allen fasteners Click Here )

    Requires no drilling, Mounts or removes in Seconds

    Simple all stainless steel construction.

    No bolt extenders required when using doubles.

    Can be used on right or left side of the back plate.

    Adjustment requires substantial effort, unintentional harness slippage is avoided.

    Not compatible with DSS Kydex back plates or with any other brand of back plates. Mounting requires holes that are only present in DSS Stainless Steel Plates.

    Works best with slightly softer harness webbing. DSS Hogarthian Harnesses sold starting April 2010 includes this slightly softer webbing. If your harness was purchased prior to April 2010 it is recommended that the harness webbing be replaced. DSS offers a package deal that includes one adpater and 12 ft of new replacement webbing.

    Dang, and those other loops look good. I just ordered a few pieces and made adjustable shoulders. I wish I had seen this earlier.

    I'd like to know myself, I'd pick one up to give it a try, it just looks slick, nothing more than is needed. I've got an Apeks BP, but I have an Agir-Brokk wing on it. The wing seems really well made, I'd expect the loops to be as well.

    For the Agir harpa loop, they don't have any dealers in the US and Canada but if you write them, they're very helpful and willing to sell and ship direct. I bought the harness and harpa loop for around 70 shipped and really like it so far. Smoother then the cinch and can use with any backplate.

    Olympus is where I started looking, they can't get them any more, but I think I will send off to the UK and get a set of the Agir Harpa

    I am hoping it is 70 like Formula1 said, I need new webbing already and while I have not checked prices for real yet I can live with this, maybe even talk about dealing here in the US for them...

    They also sell a one-sided harness kit with only a harpa loop for the left side for $38.50 or $50 for the two-sided harness kit. Those were the prices I got in Sept last year. Plus $26 bucks to ship to California.

    If you're interested, I talked with Tord Mattson, info@agir-brokk.com

    I would love to see a picture of how you use fuel line to lock these rings in place, the price is right compared to a lot of the other ideas here, if you don't mind... thanks in advance
