donno tbh steve i was thinking that my self and why i posed the question the stongest two points either side of the harness ??

 

 

That's really the only option but you really want those free for your lanyard. Also having a bridge on these points I would imagine if going to constantly be pulling your harness up and won't be very comfortable. As Robert said, buy a harness made for purpose

Sorry to be a killjoy but that's probably an automatic LOLER failure unless the manufacturer has desinged and certified the harness as being suitable for adaptation in that way. That's not to say you couldn't do it but you'll have nowhere to hide if something goes wrong.

 

Whatever you do don't attach a bridge to the side Ds. It'll drive you nuts if you ever use a wire strop a tthe same time.

 

Actually that doesn't leave any attachment points.

 

The Petzl datasheet for the Avao Sit Fast says modifications are prohibited.
