Rotor-Rig Fittings

A selection of custom fittings. These can be produced in a number of colours when 3D printed in thermoplastic Nylon PA12 (the normal material used). Other materials can be used, depending on the 3D print facility.

MJF or SLS print systems are preferred over FDM (used by most personal 3D printers) as MJF and SLS produce strong fittings with a more even finish.

Mast chock

Mast chocks in different thicknesses. This is the 6mm thick chock. Other standard thicknesses are 2, 3, 4 and 5mm, allowing fine control of the mast position in the mast gate. All chocks are 100mm wide across the top,  57.5mm wide below the top and 70mm deep (top to bottom).

Toe strap plate

Standard plastic toe strap plate with extra grip underneath. Dimensions are 48mm x 20mm x 6mm.

Multi wedge

Similar to Clamcleat wedge CL819 but partly curved underneath to work better when mounted on spars. The extra mounting hole means this fits a number of Clamcleats such as CL211MK2 and CL272 (hole centres 27mm apart) plus CL222 and CL204 (hole centres 36mm apart). Dimensions are 60mm x 18mm and just under 10mm maximum depth. 

Rope stopper

Standard rope stopper. This one is for 5mm rope and has a 25mm diameter. The 4mm stopper has a 20mm diameter and the 3mm one has a 15mm diameter.

Loop stopper

A neater/stronger stopper. Instead of tying a knot on the inside, you pass a line through and around the stopper to form a loop, finished with a splice or knot. The stopper always stays in place and cannot slide along the line. The stopper for 4mm rope has a 24mm diameter but other sizes can be printed such as the 5mm which has a 30mm diameter or 3mm (18mm diameter).

Dual stopper

A stopper designed to work with two ends of elastic or cord. Can be made in a number of sizes - 4mm cord and 5mm cord are the most common. The 4mm stopper is 25mm wide and the 5mm stopper is just under 32mm wide.

Rope-core control guide

A hollow loop to keep control lines tidy. Designed to be added to continuous control line system using a spliceable core such as Dyneema 12 strand or 4mm continuous control line. The rope core makes this loop unusually strong. Can also use a non-spliceable core if knotted or tied instead - or even a 4 or 5mm elastic core. There are three sizes - the large one has a diameter of 58mm and can be used to keep 50mm toestraps in the right position for hiking. The medium size has a diameter of 42mm and the small has a diameter of 34mm.

Broken control guide

A sheet or control line guide based on a simple loop but with a break to make it easy to add to an existing system without cutting or untying. The two holes through the break section keep the loop secure and allow easy attachment via tying or splicing to any part of the boat. The two versions have tie holes for 4mm rope with a loop diameter of 53mm or 5mm rope with a diameter of 66mm.

Looped sail tie

A connector to secure a loop of cord as it goes round a mast or post and back on to itself. The two ends of the cord are threaded through the two holes and then round into the other two holes and knotted on the back of the sail tie (first image). The loop is passed around a mast, through an eye in the sail and back over the sail tie, making it strong and secure but easy to undo. Alternatively the tie can be passed loosely around a stowed sail on deck, preventing it from being blown around in the wind. The 4mm version is 24mm x 16mm and the 6mm version shown here is 36mm x 24mm.

Single sail tie

The single cord version sail tie. A smaller sail tie where a single cord is knotted at the back, then threaded through the two holes. It needs a bowline knot (or similar) tied into the end of the cord to form a loop that goes back over the end of the sail tie to fasten it. The 4mm tie is 24mm x 12mm.
