How to Install a Suncor® Quick Attach™ Lifeline Kit
Note: At the time this video was filmed and recorded, Suncor® Quick Attach™ Lifeline Kits included the wire rope. However, the kits no longer include this item. Measure the perimeter of your boat to determine how much rope you'll need, and then order either uncoated or PVC coated stainless steel wire rope.
Lifelines are an important safety feature on boats. Lifelines keep children, pets, crew members and objects on board and can help prevent objects and people from falling overboard. Lifelines run around the perimeter of your boat. Suncor Quick Attach Lifeline Kits are an easy and effective way to install lifeline hardware on your boat. There are two types of Suncor Quick Attach Kits — with a gate or without a gate — so you can choose the kit that's best for your boat.
Suncor Quick Attach Lifeline kits are very user-friendly. In fact, you can rig a lifeline in a matter of minutes using these kits. No swage equipment is required. The only tools you need are wrenches and a wire cutter. All the fittings needed are included in the Suncor kits. The wire rope is not included, so you can choose whether you want uncoated stainless steel rope or PVC coated stainless steel rope and then order your preferred wire rope.
Suncor Quick Attach Kits are great for boat lifelines but also may be used for industrial or architectural uses where the exact length of the cable cannot be determined beforehand or where assembly needs to take place on-site. The Quick Attach system has a holding power of at least 90% of the maximum break load of the wire rope used.
These Quick Attach Kits include compression fittings that are precision cast and machined from Type 316 stainless steel. The Quick Attach turnbuckles with toggles provide a safe and secure alternative to open body fittings and allow for easy tensioning.
