One of the foot straps kept coming off the clip. Wondering if others have had this problem and what the fix is?
Take a close look at that footstrap. It must be torn, improperly seated or the the mounting peg is deformed. Normally, it's very difficult to get those straps off.
When the straps are properly adjusted, they make it easier to keep your feet in position. They also enable you to "pull", adding power to your stroke and a more complete workout for your legs. Improperly adjusted, they just seem to get in the way.
