Fasteners for Jib Halyard / Cunningham Clamcleat

 
There are no less than 3 ways to fasten the jib halyard cleat to the mast!

1.)   Aluminium rivets


 
Specification:-
  • Aluminium 4.8mm diameter X 40mm long.
  • Signal Locker product ref. 400-175 is a pack of 6 rivets. Under 'fasteners' in 'everything else' in the catalogue.
Pros:  About 12g lighter than screws......

Cons: You need a rivet gun; and one with a small nosepiece at that. The nose of a normal riveter will hit the edge of the cleat; which will either damage the cleat's anodising or will prevent the rivet from pulling the cleat firmly into the mast. The only other issue is that with rivets it's not so easy to adjust the position of the cleat (up and down the mast) as with a super slug.

Specification:-
  • 2 off Stainless Steel countersunk self tapping screws 10 x 35mm
  • Signal Locker product ref. TBA
  • £ TBA.
Pro:  Requires only a drill, a drill bit and a screwdriver to install; about 35g lighter than the super slug....

Con: The only downside of using self-tapping screws is that it is not so easy to adjust the position of the cleat (up and down the mast) as it is when using a super slug.

3.)  Signal Locker Super Slug


 
Specification:-
  • 2 off Stainless Steel countersunk self tapping screws 10 x 35mm
  • Signal Locker product ref. 400-175.
  • £2.85 for a pack of 6 rivets.
Pro:  Requires only a screwdriver to install; the position o the mast can be adjusted very easily if you find your chosen location to be too close to the cunningham above, or the kicker take off underneath.
