Weight Bag - Empty - Holds 15 to 20 Lbs
This weight bag is perfect for holding the wingtip of your glider down while on the ground. It offers a rugged carrying handle. The bag can be laid on top of the wingtip, or for gliders with winglets, the handle can be looped around the winglet. It is small and lightweight when empty so it can be easily stowed in the glider for use in the event of an off-airport landing. It is delivered empty. It can be filled with 15 to 20 lbs of steel shot, or sand, or dirt, or gravel, etc. It is made of 1000 denier black textured nylon with a water resistant polyurethane coating on the inside. Two sets of Velcro closures on each side of the saddle-shaped bag are used to do a doubly good job of locking in the user supplied sand, dirt, steel shot, or gravel. The Velcro closures are much better than the zippers found on similar products - because zippers have sharp edges that could scratch your glider. This product is not intended to be filled with water.
