A clutch for high-load, small-diameter lines, Spinlock's XCS delivers consistent holding and performance on modern lines.
The XCS is the same as the XTS but with aluminum or polished stainless sides for sustained high load operation. Available in black, silver or white. The XCS is specified as standard on production yachts worldwide and the choice for racers round the cans and offshore. Use XCS on boats that require a higher maximum working load and a more advanced release mechanism than the XAS.
