In accordance with FIS requirements, the HL 7-1 Start Gate features two isolated timing contacts.
While closed, the start gate is prevented from accidental opening caused by minor knocks and bumps through the use of a blocking feature.
Braking action built into the wand mechanism camshaft is very effective at eliminating unwanted rebound action after opening.
The new wand is a very rigid and thus highly accurate but durable product. It is installed by inserting it through the rear of the shaft holder and is held in place by a spring-mounted ball bearing.
