    • On sailboats the backstay adjuster enables the crew to precisely adjust and control the forestay tension
    • Control equates to optimum performance of the headsail and guarantees smooth operation of a furling system
    • When not under sail, the backstay adjuster permits the release of tension on the rig, thereby helping to prolong the life of the rigging and fittings
    • The larger backstay adjusters are made with an integrated ratchet system which is strong, quick and easy to use
    • Includes a folding handle which works like a ratchet for precise and frequent adjustments
