We hope this is the “final solution” to issues over the years with the base grommet cutting into the 1″ harness adjustment strap and occasionally failing. The new grommet is heavier and rounded on the edges along the also heavier 1″ webbing. The grommet/bolt connection is also covered on this unit by another layer of webbing to minimize scratches to gunmetal or wood.
The same bolt and nut are used with a smaller washer which is provided with each set of straps. The added “D” ring on each side is a good place to attach a lanyard for items stored in the shell bags or stash pockets, or one of our leather Garmin holsters.
