Spinnaker Halyard Clip by SOAK

Spinnaker Halyard Clip by SOAK SOAK Halyard Clip
Designed for Boats up to 40'

Designed to prevent accidental spinnaker launches when sailing upwind and to keep the halyard from fouling during tacks. Plus, it automatically release when you're hoisting, so it's one less thing to worry about going around the top mark. Made of high quality Nylon with UV inhibitor for durability. Nylon attachment line included.

Works best with lines from 5/32 (4mm) to 3/8 (9mm). We have found that it works best with stripped line because covered line is too rigid. For covered line we only recommend it up to 5/16".

The Economy has a slightly less agressive adhesive and a little less stretch, but a really attractive price. If you travel a lot with your boat burning through roll after roll every weekend when you rig and de-rig your boat this is perfect for you.

The Standard offers a bit more agressive adhesive on a more durable vinyl for improved holding power and stretch. It even comes with a handy dandy carrying case. This is the stuff to use if you are a set it and forget it type sailor who steps their rig once and year and rarely re-tapes things.
