With the help of our good friend Chris Merrit of BSP, we loaded the seat up to see how it would perform. The first test is with our adjustable strap ladder lock buckle. The second test is with a fixed system (no adjustable strap buckle).
In addition, our engineer friend Jamie inspected the construction of the seat and said, "You could probably tow a truck with this". So to test the webbing, fabric and stitching , we used a pair of fixed loop anchors and put the system between a couple of full size 4x4 trucks and pulled.
