would be illegal. What we did to keep our arm from coming off the track was to put washers and pins on the ends of the falling bar that falls through vertical guides if that makes sense.
So I guess we need to redo the guides then. Our fall bar isn't the problem (the first thing we did was secure that in place w/ washers and pins). Our wheels just always roll backwards without the counterweight BECAUSE of the weight of the fall bar so we're just going to add weight to the end of the arm to even it out.
