Schaefer Halyard Restrainer
Compatible with all systems, Schaefer's pre-feeder is helpful
if you intend to change sails often. Aligns your luff tape before it enters
the stainless steel feeder.
Avoid halyard wrap on your sailboat with the addition of a Schaefer
The likelihood of the halyard becoming entangled or "wrapped" around the furler
extrusion is a function of the angle of the lead out of the masthead
sheave in relation to the upper swivel unit.
Schaefer Jiffy Rigging
Schaefer Jiffy Reefing allows an entire "slab" to be quickly removed from the mainsail to reduce sail area and power in
"heavy-air" conditions. With the mainsheet and main halyard eased, Jiffy Reefing lines pull the aft reef grommet
tight to the boom. A separate reef line attached to the forward reef grommet is then tightened, pulling the sail
tight and flat at the gooseneck. The halyard is then tightened and the mainsheet is trimmed with a new reduced sail
area. It is also possible to create a single line system with Schaefer's unique block selection.
Schaefer Lazy Jacks
Lazy Jack Kits from Schaefer are designed to control the mainsail when
reefing or dousing. They easily tame today's Full Batten Mainsails and
with more conventional sails. Schaefer's Lazy Jacks "funnel" the sail down
to the boom and retain it, keeping you safe in the cockpit to properly
secure the sail when you are moored. Schaefer's design allows
for the use of an existing sailcover without the need for extensive modifications.
The use of thimbled eye straps attached to the bottom of your boom keep
the hardware away from the cover and enable you to tuck your sailcover
under the lazy jack control lines.
