Weight at the mast top is one of the biggest drawbacks to yacht performance
Equiplite Swivel Quick Connector uses high-tensile alloy body with DSK 75 ULTRA loops to take the load together. They are designed for halyards, using a compact design with less windage, and are quick and easy to operate.
High-strength material low friction, impact-resistant
The swivel quick connectors use high-strength Hardkote-anodized high-tensile aluminum body with high-load polymer bearing technology for easy rotation. They have unmatched impact and wear-resistance.
Reduced damage to the rig safe and will not jam if overloaded
The compact swivel quick connector with Velcro wrap protection reduces damage to the rig. Safer: Light weight reduces risk of injury when flogging, reduced damage to mast, spinnaker tracks, topsides, etc. Will not jam even if overloaded and will operate close to break load. Will not fatigue and fail prematurely compared to stainless steel.
The lock system can be built in to the swivel connector, which makes the system as compact as possible for maximum luff length and sail performance.
Note: Matching parts should be rounded, smooth, and with no sharp edges or burrs.
Dyneema loops are coated with an UV coating, recoat when worn for long life. It is recommended that loops should be replaced when worn.
