Here’s how to take the sling you get in the package, and add swivels OR thread it through the swivels on your rifle.
NOTE: Just using some surplus clips for this example… use ANYTHING you want!
ALSO, we used a Canyon Brown sling so you could see the sling part more easily.
You will ALWAYS start andsg
First, remove the Tri-Glide
THIS SLING, has 2 different ends on it. The loose strap end you see in this image, and the SPEED LOOP (which is built ONTO another Tri-Glide) end, which will become obvious as we continue.
NEXT, we are going to pull the loose strap end THROUGH the SPEED LOOP Tri-Glide – NOTE: Pay attention to how it is threaded… after attaching swivel, it will thread back the EXACT same way.
NOW, you just have one LONG piece of webbing with the SPEED LOOP on one end…
NOTE: USE a “Circle of Carry” way of looking at the sling and the rifle when they are put together. The bottom of the rifle, and the “top” of the sling, are how it is going to be carried, and the inside of the sling is where it will make contact with the operator… your SPEED LOOP, will ALWAYS be on the OUTSIDE pointing away from your weapon, for obvious reasons… you can’t very easily operate the SPEED LOOP if is resting against your shoulder on the inside of the sling.
For most folks, the SPEED LOOP END will probably be attached on the forward attachment point, and the Tri-Glide end will be the rear attachment. But, you may have an operator preference… just feel free to change it according to what works best for you.
OKAY… NOW thread the first swivel onto the webbing, paying attention that you want it to end up once you are done (will depend on the swivel, and where you want the gate or clasp to face. Your preference)
NOW you will thread the loose end of webbing BACK through the SPEED LOOP
THERE, YOU HAVE IT
OKAY, now to attach the loose end – AGAIN, pay close attention to how and where you want your clip or swivel gate to end up… (you can always change things if you don’t like your result, right?)
To make it EASIER, pull a big loop out of the Tri-Glide to give you room to work inside the loop
Now, just pull you slack out of the Tri-Glide
THAT’S IT! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
