    Wichard Backstay Adjusters (5568) 5568

    Features:

    • 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 smaller backstay adjusters are made with a wheel system which is strong, quick and easy to use
