    Does anyone know what the little jumper wire is for?

    I'm OCONUS so I haven't seen mine yet. Anybody taken the gate to a belt sander yet to radius the front edge for better knot passing? Is this even feasible?

    Also, I ordered the 316 stainless springs, instead of the 302 that was listed earlier, on the off chance it gets used in salt water. Probably never an issue, but something to consider if you're gonna be mapping sea caves or places where there are lots of haloclines. Part number: 8969T4

    I am not sure it is the gate that needs rounding. I suspect it is the case, and a belt sander wouldn't work there. I might work on mine with a Dremel tool.

    Why, did yours flood?

    Hi Forrest, this is Sebastien Kister, the creator/builder of MNemo. The little cable is used to reboot the unit in case you would have to. This is not necessarily unless there's a bug in the software. Cheers

    If you want to have a smoother gate, you can put two smaller springs on each side ... The first MNemo prototype were built this way. I opted for the one spring off center solution as it gave, in my opinion, a sturdier grip on the line and better accuracy on knotted line. You could also change the current spring to a weaker version. I am using springs from LeeSprings, I can sent you replacement references if needed.

    Hi Jason,

    your unit has been tested, by me in this case, during a survey dive, then taken apart, cleaned, checked, reassembled, then packaged.
    To operate the gate take the lever between thumb and index, apply a rotational force forward and then pull the lever back. This should do the job.
    Cheers
