Swedish Snap #1 Wire to 5/16" is a brass snap designed to secure a jib to the forestay. This jib snap is cast from marine quality brass and fitted with a stainless steel spring. Insert the snap into the luff grommet and gradually bend the long arm of the Swedish Snap into place with a leather mallet. Pull the piston to slide over the forestay and release to lock in place.

A #1 pressed spur grommet is required for installation. Install the grommet just behind the luff rope/wire in the sail. The long arm of the snap is bent into place. This should be done gradually to prevent breakage--a leather mallet and many blows works well. Clear plastic inserts are used to reduce wear on the sail. (Inserts sold seperately.)
