The Johnson Hyfield type lever has a number of very practical features. The fitting is rugged, having an ultimate strength of 3500 lbs. A positive stop is provided to prevent jamming fingers between fitting and wire when thrown open under load.
The large surface area of the push pad makes it easier to close the lever under load. Lever take-up is 2-1/8 inches to an over center position and comes with a quick release pin for positive locking.
This is an essential piece of hardware on Catamaran shrouds to allow the crew to right the boat after a capsize. Without it another boat or extraordinary effort is required. Trailerable boats up to 26 feet find that a lever on the forestay greatly facilitates stepping and unstepping the mast. ;
