I'm not talking about the padding or the rack itself. I want to know what you are using to actually tie it down and hold in place. Strap? Looking for a better way that obviously holds glder to rack, but also is wide enough that the pressure doesn't hurt the wing. Quick and easy is a bonus.
Use straps like these (see attached), at least one inch wide. This type of buckle features push-button release, one size fits all, reliable
, not expensive. I can't vouch for the other types of buckles. A six or eight foot (2m~2.5m) long strap is about the right length.
Run the strap over the glider, under the rack, back over the glider, under the rack, and join the end to the buckle.
All IMHO, of course.
