A Seldén Rodkicker facilitates sail handling when reefing, preventing the boom from dropping into the cockpit or onto the coach roof. When fitted with a Seldén gas spring, it lifts the boom when the kicking strap is released. Excellent for trimming the main in light air. The Seldén Rodkicker also doubles the purchase of your kicking strap.

Easily installed, easily operated The extended block attachment lug allows the block to turn, enabling the tackle to be operated from either port or starboard. The Rodkicker is supplied with detailed instruc tions and is easily fitted. If a Rod kicker is retro fitted to an existing rig, the original kicking strap tackle can still be used. Seldén Rodkickers are made of anodised aluminium and are carefully tested to meet stringent quality and performance standards.

End-fitting
The rounded end-fitting, with enclosed sheave and recessed split pin, is desig ned to avoid snagging sails or crew.

Extrusion
The inner extrusion end plug acts as an easy-slide bushing and prevents metal to metal contact. The upper sliding bearing also acts as an elastic buffer to dampen the shock if the kicker suddenly bottoms.

Gas Spring
The Rodkicker can be supplied with an optional integral gas spring. This lifts the boom when the kicking strap is released, opening the leech of the sail. A Rodkicker with a gas spring replaces the topping lift, making reefing fast and simple. The gas spring is easily retrofitted to a Rodkicker that does not have a spring.
