This item is no longer available.

Lewmar’s award-winning rope clutches give you a controlled release under load. A longer holding pattern reduces line wear, yet you get full holding power on any type of line. For day racers and cruisers up to 32', the D1 series offers all the features of the larger D2 series, with a rounder profile. The handle has a solid link to the clutch mechanism, the action is friction-controlled, and bright clear decals (included) identify line functions. Clutches have doubling plates under the fastenings and a spring at the base that’s clear of the deck fastenings for easy installation.

      Comments about Lewmar D1 Rope Clutch, Double, 3/8"- 1/2" Line Dia.:

      I bought this clutch to backup a cleat on the wall holding my Snark sailboat above the cars in my garage (with blocks and 3/16 line). The clutch probably works fine, however the line size range given in West Marine's online description is incorrect -- the clutch actually holds lines 3/8 thru 7/16.
