A while ago I purchased a Tetruss assembly, the light weight is excellent. I did discover a most alarming problem very soon however, the entire tripod is susceptible to tipping completely over. As soon as one moves the center of gravity of the being suspended person away from the overhead hard point at the joint of the 3 legs, it becomes unstable and potentially dangerous.

I won't use it unless I can anchor one leg on the floor to a hard point, or alternately with a spotter at one corner.

I have read from Lee Harrington of this issue, but so far no others.

Has anyone worked with a Tetruss and have a suggestion to make?

thanks
