    The carabiner and string is a safety system. If you look at the second picture, you will see that there is a second rope above the main rope. One carabiner is attached to the camera strap, and the other is clipped onto the safety line. This is to keep the camera from hitting the ground should the main line break.

    I do not have a full instructable, however on my blog, I have a detailed walk through with a list of all of the materials and descriptions of each part of the system. Here is the link: http://colvins.ca/?p=58#content.

    Ah ha! I never would have figured that out. That's a thoughtful design. I thought it was to stabilize the whole mechanism. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. And thanks for the link!
