Emergency sail clamp

Here is a nifty solution for affixing your jib to your forestay in the event of failure of the original rig.

Shackle Attachment

Nylon Ties on rollerfurl foil
with #2 Swedish Hank

Made of UV-resistant black nylon.

5/8 inch 10-32 stainless allen head (hex) bolts with Nylor© locking nuts.

Groove accomodates #5, #6, #7 luff tapes or for general use attach to any line, shroud or stay 1/4 inch or less.

Use one Sail Clamp every three feet for emergency use and every two feet if converting a rollerfurl jib to a hanked jib.

Go to their website for further information.
