    Wow I'm gone for a week or two and you're manufacturing swivels now. I'll be contacting you soon to buy one.

    It is a great swivel design. Lube free is a feature I can't live without and he's achieved it with a quick bag change out. And it's quiet. And fast.

    I have been getting some questions about the process to get an Arc (or two. or how about a nice six-pack ) Its easy.

    Send me a Private Message, tell me what color(s) you want, which of my 3 charities you pick, and give me your eBay name and your zip code or country.

    And unless you specify a particular shipping method, I'll just figure out the most economical.

    Then I will make an eBay Buy It Now/Best Offer listing specifically for you with your swivels in the picture, and I'll send you a link via PM. You use the Make Offer button and put in $40 per swivel and I will accept your offer. Then you pay via PayPal and I print a label and ship it.

    Easy peasy.

    Since the Arcs are beginning to ship, I want to give a few tips about install and use.

    - Do NOT lubricate. It is designed to operate dry. If it gets dirty, just wipe it clean, or if you must, wash with soap and water and dry. The polymers should be fairly resistant to chemicals, but I have not tested any.

    - I included mounting screws, #10 x 1" wood screws. You may want to use your existing screws or bolts so you do not damage the threads in your platform.

    - The center area of the platform above the swivel should be flat and smooth. The ball in the Arc swivel sits very close to the platform and obviously needs to move freely.

    - I included an extra tri-hook clasp in case the one on the swivel gets lost.

    I am working on stocking up all four colors now, so keep those orders rolling in! Arctic Spirit and I thank you!

    -Rusty

    After nearly a year in research and development, and a positive reception at SpeedB.A.G IX, I am ready to make it available to the forum. This is my hobby, and I am not a business. My goal is not to profit from selling it, but to get it out there and have fun doing it. So I am going to sell them for charity. The price is $40 each plus shipping.

    I have 10 Arc Fuel (red) swivels ready to ship now. Other colors will take an extra few days for me to make them first.
    I'll definitely take 1 of the Arc Fuel. I'll be in touch on PM

    wider than the Ringside, it could be a problem. Are the Cletos that way?

    The ringside heritage loops are the thickest I have, considerably meatier than my cleto's. Depending on the flexibility I think a cleto would fit on that. As far as loop width (side to side) my Titles are a little wider than the cletos.

    You might have trouble with a very short loop, or one that you have shortened.

    Here is a closup of how you hang the bag. The clasp just flips up, slide on the bag loop, flip back down. When the clasp is up, you can bend the tri-hook slightly to wiggle in a very thick loop. But if you have a very wide loop, wider than the Ringside, it could be a problem. Are the Cletos that way?

    Above where I say "Compatible with all but the thickest loop bags", I should be a more specific about that. I'll come up with a list of bags that I know fit, and you can compare yours from that list.
