Great ideas. I think I'll end up adding a bit of white paint to the jaws. I know the safety latch won't go down properly if things are properly closed, but god forbid something with the jaws breaks, allowing the handle to go in and lock, but now allowing the jaws to fully engage.
I do have a pretty good system, that I don't deviate from. I've had the 5'er one summer, but I'm still a bit cautious and nervous, making sure things are done correctly.
