Double Basket BDG

The BDG is a double basket adjustable from one side.  One end of each leg is pinned to the master link with a non-load bearing retaining pin while the other ends can be removed from the master link, passed under or around the load, and then secured back onto the master link at the engineered flat to create the basket.  This allows the rigger to capture the load with both legs before creating the basket.
