Description of the WedgeTM

Unfortunatilly all altimeter mounts, which are attached to the cheststrap, tend to move to the left or to the right, as well as up- and down, thus making it impossible to check the altitude at a quick glance.
While using a full-face helmet, the chin part of the helmet obstructs also a clear view on the altimeter. The only way to see the altimeter is then to bend the head downwards, resulting in cupping air, which in turn creates an unavoidable floating position.
 

A cheststrap mounted altimeter is during tight exits always in the way and becomes uncomfortable and even hazardous to wear.
Also facial injuries might occur during hard openings, as well as chest injuries during a possible bad landing

As LookMa® Paraphernalia is serving not only the expert RW skydivers, we had to listen to all of our friends and customers and they came up with valid remarks and concerns, which in turn, we incorporated in the Euro-version of the Wedge.

First of all we included a little stretch pocket on the back of The Wedge, which may be filled with a variable spacer made out of  closed-foam, in order to correct for any altimeter misalignment due to different rig configurations and body proportions. 

Also our standard version includes an
2” Uni-Loop and is attached with an elastic strap. Now the cheststrap can be routed thru this 2” Uni-Loop, keeping the mount close to the boby. Especially Free-Flyers appreciate this feature as the mount is not pushed up by the wind anymore, while standing up.
The elastic strap may be ajusted in length with a variable Velcro attachment, to handle different rig configurations.

As the “Flat-Flyers” rarely need this feature, it is possible to remove the Uni-Loop by simply opening the Velcro® attachment.
Now it looks more or less like the original  “Golden Knights” Version again.

The mount can quickly and easily be installed onto most rigs. It is flexible in order to prevent injuries and to enable tight exits

All Velcro® straps are delivered with extra length to fit to most comercially available parachute rigs. After installing the mount onto the rig, the access Velcro® may be shortened with a pair of regular siccors. No fraying will occur.

The actuall altimeter may be attached to The Wedge with the supplied cord and the special heavy duty cord-lock.
Backplates with little screws, like on an Altimaster IV, may be used as well. The cord and cord-lock become then obsolete.

Like the other LookMa® Products, The Wedge is also equipped with the typical LookMa® initials label to avoid ownership confusion.

Hand mounted altimeters do also have their problems if it comes to safety and comfort.
Sit-Flyers even have to give up their stable position by bringing their arms in forward, in order to check the altitude. And looking at the altimeter while tracking away is vitually impossible.

In the past, also the US-Army Team, 
the Golden Knights, faced these problems.
Mike Daughtry, at that time a member of the
Knights, developped then this unique altimeter mount in order to avoid all the above described problems.
The Wedge is normally mounted on the left mudflap of the rig. This is done with double layered Velcro® tape.
By mounting an altimeter in this location, it will
not interfear and is clearly visable.

! ATTENTION !
We are sorry, but the SST Racer does not allow “The Wedge” to be mounted onto the rig.
This is due to the fact that the bottom of the mudflap is sewn together with the main webbing.

The Mudflaps needs to be open at the bottom and at the top in order for “The Wedge”
to be mounted.
