Power Recruits?

Charles Poliquin has talked about these things called Power Recruits that help you lower very heavy eccentric loads but when they come into contact with the ground they unhook from the bar.

Does any one know a site that I can buy them from or does anyone have any good pics of them? I did find a decent pic of them from one of his articles.

They look like weight releasers.

Except that Elite doesn’t actually sell them anymore. There’s a set on ebay right now.

Or you can make a pair for less than half the cost. I have a pair I rigged together that work fine.
