This cover pad slides over the stainless triangle at the end of the original Melges 24 padded straps (the ones that had the 4 in. wide exposed/unpadded triangle end). Additionally, there is a pad for the Melges 24 unpadded diagonal strap with 2-1/2 in. wide triangle ends.
They insure the crew hiking near the ends of the straps have a fully padded strap and do not end up pressing against a hard, uncomfortable triangle. Closed cell foam padding on both sides. Slides on like a sleeve.
