      Comments about C.SHERMAN Johnson Gate Stop, 3/16" Nominal Dia. (wire), 5/16" Max. Coating:

      I wanted something to replace the "Crosby Clips" I was using to create a lifeline gate. These work but the single screw tends to pierce the lifeline coating, not good. I ordered oversized sleeves and made an inner "compression plate" from a tiny piece of aluminum bar to spread out the load. This works well but was a pain to make and install. My new lifelines will have proper gate eyes.

            You may not be able to install this on existing lifelines if the end fittings are too large to allow the stops to pass over them.

                The Gate Stops are designed and built well. They were easy to install and worked as advertised. I would purchase these again if needed.

                  On occasion I need to pull in bow first at a marina and undo the lifeline at the bow pulpit. This releases tension in the entire lifeline all the way to the stern. This situation can be dangerous for persons that grab the lifeline for support not realizing that it is loose. The Johnson Gate Stop I installed forward of the front stanchion is the perfect item to stop the lifeline from loosening the entire length.

                    An unobstrusive way to keep tension on a lifeline when the gate is open. Well machined and finished.
