George and Rayna Shaunfield

Two years ago when I needed to replace a boomkim whiskerstay that had a cracked swaged fitting I decided to try a mechanical fitting. Then if I needed to replace the standing rigging in the future at least I would have a little experience. I looked into Sta-Lok, Norseman, and Hi-Mod.

Rigging Only http://www.riggingonly.com/ carries all three and had the best pricing at the time. They said they had had good experience with Hi-Mod. I liked that design better than Norseman and the cones are reusable. I have been pleased thus far with my choice of Hi-Mod.

Hi-Mod mechanical fittings are manufactured by Petersen Stainless Rigging in the UK (who seems to have a good reputation) and are distributed in the US by Hayn Marine. The Hayn website http://www.hayn.com/marine/rigging/himod.html has picture and video assembly instructions and information about Hi-Mod's failsafe insulator. Someone who has used all three type had this to say, "I've used Stalock, Norsesman, Hayn and swage; Hayn wins hands down for ease of use and re-use."
