If your shroud or stay breaks in the middle of nowhere, a quick help is needed.
In this case the swageless terminals of the Danish manufacturer Blue Wave are a good option.
No special tools required. Swagless terminals can be mounted easily and safely in a short time without using a roller swaging machine.

To mount the Blue Wave screw terminal "CONE", made for 1 x 19 wire rope construction, open the wire rope, push the cone into the wire rope and lay back the individual outer wires around the cone. Afterwards screw the terminal togeather and the new shroud is ready to use.


Blue Wave offers a special Rope Eye Fitting range fo
r shroud and stays in Dyneema rope construction.
Mounting the rope eye fittigs is really simple, too.
Just make
a splice around the little bone and screw the two terminal parts together - ready is your new connection.
DynaOne MAX HS from Gleistein fits perfect to the Rope Eye fittings.

Imagine a screw-stud on deck of your beautiful boat used to fix a cover being 100% corrosion free and that blends away in the deck colour.
A final farewell to those annoying eye-catching points that stand out of the smooth design lines, even if they are not corroded.
Designers love to have the beautiful lines and shapes of their product not being disrupted by those inevitable points to hold cushions,
blinds, carpets or covers downon deck. While it entails the exact same and quick installation as a normal screw stud.
A unique formula of smart design and high quality materials make it possible to have a
composite self-tapping screw stud for use in fiber glass, wood and other composites.
CAF COMPO
comes in 4 standard colours ( white, creamwhite, grey and black).

The stud is the lower part of a snap or ring-spring press fastener system. CAF COMPO
screw-stud will fit any regular ring spring socket, no matter the supplier.
