    What are the black things on the safety bar?
    I’ve seen them on a couple of the new LPA lifts.

      They are called KidStop. As the name suggests, they help prevent small children from sliding under the bar. Skytrac sells them now in addition to Leitner-Poma.

        I get the idea, but there are better ways to accomplish that purpose. The way the bars have the kid restrained on Black Mountain Express at a basin is much more comfortable for riders, as it doesn’t restrict leg movement.
