A message came to me from Favebook some has the Trinity float tube and enjoys it other then there is no stabilization bar. When they site in it it colapses around them. He would like some ideas on fixing this issue. So i bring this to the forum what are your thoughts and ideas guys?

I think the easiest thing would be to just install your own cross bar on it.
The creation of two "pockets" of reinforced fabric (kevlar perhaps?), adhered to the top of the tube with a good glue (cold wield comes to mind), and cutting out a pvc pipe would be more than adequate to stop the taco effect.

Looking at it closely, using a stiffer/more snug seat material would help as well? When the seat isn't rigid enough, it will also allow for the taco effect. Best of luck.

Second what kin said. I've learned with mine to inflate the seat to full capacity before inflating the tube itself.

If that doesn't get it done, the existing pockets for the stripping apron could be used to rig up a spreader bar. Heck, he could use a piece of abs pipe and cut slits for the stripping apron legs to pass through and be done with essentially no mods necessary.

I too have to agree with Kin and Bob. Having an inflatable seat on my fat cat and no bar, I use to fill the seat and back rest by using my lungs. Not any more. I use the pump. The piece of clear tubing they supply fits the valves of the seat and back rest. It took me 2 years to figure that out. It would have been nice to have it in the written instructions that came with the tube. That's why this forum is important to me and others, the learning experience..............GT

My understanding is that the lightweight Trinity is made for packing and hiking into locations. Not sure you'd want to add more stuff to carry in the form of a spreader bar. If that user is not using it for that purpose, maybe it's the wrong tube for that person.  Otherwise, just follow Outcast's recommendations for inflation.
