Rope Clutches & Jammers
A rope clutch uses a toothed cam which is controlled by a handle. When the handle is down, the cam is engaged and the toothed plate keeps the rope in place. To fully release the line, simply open the clutch handle. Clutches are ideal for medium sized boats that need controlling of medium loads. Clutches in general support larger loads than regular cleats, for example to lock off a halyard, main, jib or even spinnaker.
Jammers works in much the same way as a clutch, but the handle cannot be released whilst under heavy load. Jammers an ideal hardware for lines will be permanently loaded for extended periods of time, for example halyards on big boats.
