The Solo Chest Mount Spreader comes with an adjustable strap that can be attached to the spreader to run diagonally across your back either left to right or right to left and is long enough to fit anyone.

answer 3
The strap loops over one shoulder and then under the opposite arm. I'm 5'7 and there was plenty of extra adjustment available. my guess is it would fit up to a 6 and a half footer.

These are the instructions to mount to your chest.
• Stand the spreader upright at about waist level on a table, bench or stand.
• Adjust the strap to longest reach.
• Attach the strap hook to the top right eye on the hopper (as viewed from operator’s position).
• With the back of the spreader facing your chest, slip the strap over your right shoulder and across your back.
• Set strap hook under spreader housing.
• With the spreader fitted, crank the handle and determine if the spreader is set at a comfortable height. Remove the spreader, adjust the strap and try again until you are
comfortable with fit and function.

This Solo Spreader will spread material the size of rice. If the salt that you are using is the size of rice or smaller then it would work.
