Outhaul System – Quick Release Version

Complete Ready to Fit Systems

Note that this Quick Release version of the outhaul system uses a fixed clew block and a large loop on the primary line that loops over the boom end. If you prefer to use the more traditional block/hook or captive shackle at the clew look at our normal outhaul system

All our systems are supplied with full colour installation instructions.

Start by selecting the block type for your outhaul system and use the drop down menus to select the system block location, secondary control line colour and length. If you are in any doubt as to which system/option is right for you please refer to our Ordering Guide page which will take you through the system types and options available. Note that our outhaul systems assume that you are using a clew block – if you don’t want to use a clew block, send us an e-mail after any order and we will lengthen the primary by 10cm to compensate. Clew blocks are not included in the systems below as there are many types to choose from – select the clew block that is right for you at our Clew Block page.

Secondary control line made from Gottifredi Maffioli 4mm SK78 Dyneema Compact Braid .  This is an ‘extreme’ uncovered control line that some top sailors prefer to use for the downhaul and outhaul. Sealed ends are standard (the free end is epoxy/heatshrink sleeving glued in place giving a very clean finish to the end that both prevents fraying).

System Options – Clew Blocks

We offer a range of clew blocks specially selected to work with the quick release system where the loop on the end of the primary is threaded through the block, where a wider opening is desirable. These clew blocks are designed to remain attached to the sail clew until you want to move them to another sail.

Harken 18mm Solutions

We have added Harken 18mm solutions to our range of clew blocks for use with the quick release outhaul system. If you order one of these blocks we recommend adding the ‘teaser line’ below which greatly helps pulling the large loop through the small opening on the Harken 18mm block.

SYSTEM OPTION - When ordered with a quick release outhaul system we add a small line to the large boom end loop. The teaser line greatly assists pulling the large loop through the small opening on the Harken 18mm T2 Carbo Block. Note that this is just the teaser line - the block is not included

Harken 29mm Block with Toggle
Harken's 29mm T2 Carbo Block with a toggle for attachment at the sail clew. The toggle is a tight fit through the loop - it is not designed for easy removal so shouldn't be used as a quick release but as an alternative to tying on a block. If you already have a block then consider just the toggle and strop (below)

Toggle with Strop
Make your own clew block with this pre-spliced toggle and strop. If you want to use this with a Harken 18mm or 29mm Carbo Block we recommend selecting it with the soft eye (just above the toggle).

System Options – Outhaul Elastics/Inhaul Bungees

We offer two types of outhaul elastic/inhaul bungees. The first is a normal elastic and clip designed to pull the clew of the sail back to a fixed point (normally the cleat on top of the boom). The second is our new ‘double puller’ elastic – this unique design is amazingly effective – one part of the elastic pulls the clew of the sail inboard, whilst the other part of the elastic attaches to an anodized aluminium toggle by the floating outhaul block and pulls the control line back through the blocks/fairlead/cleat.
