Nylon Hank Wire to 1/8" (With Screw)
For forestay wire up to 1/8 inch in diameter. These hanks are simple and inexpensive, but they do not have the strength nor do they provide the surety required for larger boats. Thus, they are used primarily on day sailing boats under 20 feet. Install by inserting a self-tapping screw (included) into two plastic "ears" that fit over and behind the luff reinforcement. Soaping the screws before installation reduces breakage. Grommets are not necessary.
To Install: Twist in place: it is simply turned sideways, pushed over the stay, and then turned upright.

Appear to be a great replacement for the diaper pin style attachments currently on my jib. I will have to see how they weather. My only complaint with the kit is that I used them on a jib that had grommets and the screws are a little to short. I think they were designed to go on a sail without grommets. It was a quick job to replace them with longer screws.
