The A.597 was developed to reduce friction on the mainsheet. Ideal for making pumping or general trimming of the mainsheet easier.
Perfect for any dinghy that has a mainsheet jammer. Especially classes that run a spilt tale mainsheet or have class legal pumping.
The top roller allows for forcefull pumps in an upward direction that won’t gradually wear through the rope-guide. The reduction in friction will also result in less energy expenditure for the sailor.
Sideways loads are also catered for with rolling side fairleads.
Easily fitted to any Cam Cleat with 38mm hole centres.
Comes with extra-long threads to allow for customisation with cleat lifters and wedges. The threads can then be cut to length.
- Fixing holes: 38mm
Why buy Allen?
The Allen brothers, Tony and Glenn, started their business back in 1956 with a vision of performance sailing hardware driven by their passion for sailing and their love of engineering, innovation and technology. The first fittings, which they designed and made for their own race boats, were such an improvement on everything then in use, that they were persuaded to set up full production to meet the demand of the growing dinghy sailing market. The principle of concept to completion still holds true and the company has grown in the past 60 plus years to become a major exporter, selling high-performance sailing hardware to the World. R&D, design, prototyping, toolmaking and production takes place at the Allen factory in Southminster, Essex, UK, which is now run by Tony Allen’s daughter Liz Adams along with a highly skilled and dedicated Management Team.
