Latest News: Forums Technical Mast pivot pin Reply To: Mast pivot pin



I am sure I will upset some purist but, trailing my boat as I do, I also became frustrated with the fiddly split rings so I swapped one end for an ‘R’ spring clip (if that is the correct name but it looks like one – it is like the spring clip on my trolley wheels but smaller). I keep the split ring on one side (port – where the asymmetric goes) and use the R clip on the other side for convenience.

I find this much easier and have so far had no difficulties.
