Rappel seat left hand brake

The rappel seat is utilized to form a rope harness for rappelling and can be tied for use with the left or right hand. Leg straps do not cross and are centered on buttocks and tight.  Leg straps form locking half-hitches on rope around waist.  Square knot properly tied on right hip and finished with two overhand knots.  Tails even within 6 inches.  Carabiner properly inserted around all ropes with opening gate opening up and away.  Carabiner will not come in contact with square knot or overhand knot.  Rappel seat is tight enough not to allow a fist to be inserted between the rappeller’s body and the harness.
