Swedish Snap #3 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.

A #3 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.)
