It's the cheapest insurance you will ever buy. Joe's wife, Doralee was flying this plane when she crashed in December of 1989. That same day she went to a Christmas party without so much as a scratch. She swears that if it had not been for her just recently installed B.A.S. Inertial reel shoulder harness, she would be dead when her face smashed into the panel which ended up in her lap. Tail wheel pilots with manual flaps are asking for trouble if they don't switch out their regular shoulder harnesses for inertial reel harnesses. By loosening the normal shoulder harnesses to provide enough slack to reach down to pull on flaps, you are also allowing your body to fly forward too much in the event of a crash, and believe me, your body will FLY forward. If you don't buy anything else for your airplane, please consider buying inertial reel shoulder harnesses.
Never worry about having your seat slip back again. What a bummer that would be on takeoff!

Sportsman, Horton, and Robertson STOL (Sierra Industries) are some of the stol kits currently available. Bush, MidAmerica, Av-Con and Crosswind are examples of other Stol kits you may find on used aircraft but are no longer available. All extend the leading edge with a more pronounced cuff except for the Robertson STOL (Sierra Industries) which only extends 1972 and earlier, but droops the ailerons. My personal favorite would have to be the Sportsman for the biggest bang for your buck on any 73 and up 180-185. The Robertson STOL (Sierra Industries) good but twice the installation cost of the Sportsman. On an early 180-185 the Horton at @ $799.00 or $1399.00 factory installed would be the biggest change for the least money. Some friends of mine have gone as far as combining a Sportsman cuff with the Robertson STOL (Sierra Industries) drooped aileron system for the ultimate STOL capability!
