1. Free Rolling Ball Bearings
Multiple rows of large-diameter Torlon® ball bearings in high load areas of the halyard swivel and drum minimize friction for smooth furling; Require no lubrication or isolating seals.
2. Strong Foil Joints
Tough foil joints withstand years of torque loading. Connector interlocks to foil and secures with screws and adhesive.
3. Single-Groove Round Foil
Round foil profile withstands extreme reefing loads for safe furling. Rolls more easily than aerodynamic foil shapes.
4. Easy to Assemble Foils
C-shaped open connectors with low-friction plastic isolators slip onto the headstay wire and into foil for easy installation.
5. Drum Installs Over Existing Turnbuckle
Units are adaptable to a variety of rigging options for easy installation. Harken® toggle assembly accepts standard turnbuckle using swage, rod, Norseman® or Sta-Lok® terminals, or fits directly to a marine eye. A single stainless steel clevis pin provides access to the turnbuckle for adjustment.
