Hi folks,

I'm looking to order the parts needed to attach my 6:1 downhaul to the mast luff track

Image

The small image is taken from here https://www.murrays.com/product/07-2089-1/

The problem is I'm a newbie and don't know what its called :roll: - can anyone help out

I could use a saddle but it wouldn't be as neat.

I would just go to a chandlers but we are in L3 lockdown here in Auckland so I'm stuck with the internet

When you get one, bend one end down a bit, file a notch in the luff track to match the bend positioned at the top. Then tighten in place. The screws alone are not enough to hold it in position, so the notch and bent part locks it in place.

Awesome, thanks. Just picked one up from Dan @ The Watershed here in Auckland

Appreciate the installation tip too, much appreciated.
