I'm thinking about getting a G70. I'm wondering is it's possible to swap out the Pin Block that comes on the G 70 for one like this

I prefer the safety of having the curved/scaloped contact points for the screws, particularly with the BM vest.

Has anyone with a BM Vest and a G70 done this?

PRO-GPI has a 10% discount for the month of July.

Does that answer your question?

Hi Brad

We have plenty of G-70 owners with WK vests and as far as I am aware the connector has never been an issue. Don't forget that the G-70 also has the kick back on the connector which should be reversed to get the best arm angle for back mount.

Thanks Robin,

Does that mean it's not possible to swap out the Pin Block?

I'm actually a "Goofy" so in this case everything stays the same, but thanks for the tip!

Cheers,

Brad.

Brad- it's still possible to swap out the male connection bit - but i echo Robin's sentiments- there's no need to swap out the block...

How did you think I was able to drive in LA?

That whole place is on the wrong side of the road!
