Reviews

Didn't stand up to pressureReview by Michael
Quality
My initial review indicated how I liked the convenience of this piece but sadly it did not stand up to pressure. During my last tack to the finish line in my last race of the day I pulled on the vang and heard a snap. The retaining piece of the pin was half jammed into the pin itself and had sheared off landing in my cockpit. It may have been me but I tend to be pretty conscious of how I rig my boat. Perhaps the pin had rotated such that the retaining piece slid part way out as opposed to being at the full 90 degree locking angle. Anyway I'm lucky I didn't get it in the eye. (Posted on 5/27/2016)
Diameter is too thickReview by Al Sargent
Quality
Great idea, but the diameter of this is just a hair too wide to fit into the tang on the bottom section I used. As in, maybe half a millimeter too thick. So I had to switch back to the standard clevis pin that came with the vang block. Since I often sail a borrowed/chartered Laser, drilling out the tang isn't an option.

If West Coast sold a smaller diameter pin, I'd definitely buy it. (Feel free to drop me a line, guys, I'm in your database.) (Posted on 12/19/2015)
Expensive, but very niceReview by Michael
Quality
I'm slow rigging, unrigging. I really like this pin compared to the standard clevis pin. When its cold and wet this is much easier to deal with compared to that small finicky split ring. (Posted on 12/2/2015)
