Bronze, like stainless steel, is very strong and highly resistant to corrosion. By making the body of the rigging screw in chrome plated aluminium bronze and the terminals in high grade marine stainless steel, we have reduced the risk of the thread seizing up under heavy loads. A design feature which gives you a product that performs better and lasts even longer.
IMPORTANT NOTICE ON 5/8" RIGGING SCREWS
Back in 1998 we changed the clevis pin diameter from Ø 13 mm to Ø 15.8 mm. When upgrading to new rigging screws on a boat built prior to this change, the clievis pin will most likely be bigger than the chain plate hole. This conversion kit has to be ordered separatly (item 306-558-03)
