I dont know if you have a TM but it says on the instructions that the red rope parts are not to be used for the chainsaw and only the red ring at the very back should be used.
Personally i like the fact that these parts are weak and come apart so easily, it always worries me getting something caught up in a falling branch or something heavy and being pulled out the tree.
I think the TM is the best harness i have ever used and will buy another when needed. Just my personal oppinion

Re: Tree motion

I'm TM'd up and I love it but I still use my others. Love and respect my old Willans and still use it in big hedges. Butterfly spends most of its hanging up and the surprise was a TimberII which is ace as a light weight set up with comfort and simplicity together.

No I was talking about the little red loop that is next to the chainsaw ring on the back of the harness.

I took mine off I find it pointless, and I had accidentally clipped my saw there once not a good idea!!
Besides its to far around to be of much use as tool attachment point and there are so many points to customise your own tool loops.

Re: Tree motion

as marc said, id just thread some loops through the stamped holes and make your own. keeps the chainsaw ring easier too find that way too..
