Thumbs up

All you need to do is attach the coil wire better to the pole.

wrap the coil wire around the shaft and you will not be getting so many falses. If your machine is not falsing then the sensitivity is turned down well below what you can use with the wire wrapped.

Thanks guys. It's not as bad as it looks when I either hip mount or backpack mount it, the cord slack is taken up. I have a armrest mount coming to mount the brain box. When I do that I will wrap the cord. Still trying to figure out a more secure way to attach the lower shaft. Right now it is hot glued and duct taped, but it is solid. The upper shaft pipe is PVC.
