Karver KFH5 Furling Lock Swivel - 5T SWLKAR-KPF470020
The Karver KFH eliminates stretch and creep ensuring your halyard is at perfect hoist everytime and also reduces mast compression. The KFH combines a lock and a swivel to be used with a furling drum. Once locked, the halyard is not tensioned anymore. The compression in the mast is halved and halyard wear is minimised. The luff is tensioned from the bottom of the drum with a block, eliminating the need for a 2:1 halyard set up. It is also possible to use a smaller and lighter halyard as it only carries the weight of the sail. Once unlocked, only the lightest part of the mechanism remains on the top of the mast, the furlinglock is on deck leaving no moving parts aloft, making it easy to service.
