Re: Traveler setup?

Pull out the traveler control lines and run them as close as you can to the illustration in Post 16 above.. You may end up with one less part, but the way that's all reeved now is difficult to see and is apparently not working.. I suspect that the cleats are holding fine but the line is reeved in such a way as to allow the car to slide back and forth with the control lines fixed.

The picture isn't clear enough, but starting over should do the trick.
