          Bought these to run the main halyard and reefing lines aft to the cockpit. After our first on the water test they work well and fit nicely on the deck of our Catalina 22 Sport.

                Be sure to read installation instructions. Fit very well as a main halyard clutch back to the cockpit on my Oday 25. Fit perfectly; works wonderfully.

                  Comments about XAS Powerclutches:

                  I ran the main halyard on my Catalina 27' back to the cockpit using a couple of blocks, and this rope clutch. It was super easy to install, and works like a dream. You flip the handle all the way up to clear the "tooth" off the line, then rotate it forward a little bit in preparation of grabbing the line again. Raise the main, and a simple slap on the top drops the tooth back down on the line. The main is up, and it ain't coming down! I love it so much, I can't wait to run the jib halyard back using the same set up and rope clutch.

                  Just be sure to mount it: a) the proper direction (or the line will slip and never hold), and b) with some sort of backing plate. I used marine lumber, and this puppy is rock solid!
