    Towing Mouth Release

    Mouth release for aero or winch towing with a hang glider traditionally coming from eastern Europe has a big advantage of keeping your hands free for steering the glider at all times time during towing. It comes especially critical in the first moments of the towing when controlling the base bar should not be compromised by the need to open the release as it can be for the barrel release types.

     

    Have you experienced the nasty situation of the wing becoming unlevel when taking off from the dolly but you can’t open the barrel release because you’re fighting for your life?! That situation can be very dangerous. Watch the video below where Michael explains in details why and how to use the mouth release to make the towing safer.
     
     
    Watch the videos below for in-depth guidance for the aero-/winch-towing mouth release.

    • strong valley wind over 20 km/h with direction (thick arrow)
