Johnson Marine introduces splice line fittings

ADVERTISEMENT

 

Connecticut-based C. Sherman Johnson has introduced a line of splice line fittings designed for replacement of stainless steel lifelines with hi-tech Dyneema or Spectra line. Lightweight, easy-to-install and machined from hard-anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, the splice end accommodates up to 5/16-inch diameter line. The new fittings are available with a turnbuckle, pelican hook, gate eye, or toggle jaw attached. And the fittings are available with four sizes of male thread, allowing installers to reuse existing hardware.


 

Dyneema and Spectra lines are approved by U.S. Sailing and ISAF as replacement for stainless steel lifelines.
