Moulded nylon wear protection pads for the ILCA dinghy. Designed to stop the mainsheet blocks from damaging the deck of the boat. The wear protectors clip around the traveller fairlead and are held in place by friction and the traveller rope. There is no overhang on the gunwale, so snagging is not possible. A smooth transition from deck level ensures the mainsheet block rides over the pad easily. Comes as a handed pair, one for starboard and one for port.
How to install Wear Protectors
To install the wear protectors, firstly loosen and remove the traveller line. Then slide the “mouth” of the wear pad around the A.282A fairlead and push firmly until you hear a faint click. Re-install and tighten the traveller line. Voila!
The friction from the “mouth” piece around the fairlead, and the tightness of the traveller rope, will keep the wear pad in place.
