United Parachute Technologies’ riser cover modification, which adds extra magnets. I understand this is intended to increase the security of the riser covers, particularly for those who work at higher freefly speeds.

The cover on the left of the image is modified and that on the right, standard. The kit was free and took about 30 minutes to apply.

The covers seem slightly smarter, slightly more secure and a little less likely to close naturally when under canopy. We’ll see 😀
