Swedish Snap #1 Wire to 5/16" is a brass jib hank designed to secure a jib to the wire forestay. This jib snap is cast from marine quality brass and fitted with a stainless steel spring. Gradually bend the long arm of the Swedish Snap into place with a leather mallet and use the sliding piston to positively lock the hook end over the stay. Often a #1 pressed spur grommet is required for installation. Install the grommet just behind the luff reinforcement in the sail. Use with a plastic insert (sold separately) to reduce wear on the sail.
