Product of the Week: Jurgan Tool-Free Clevis Pin

Sail-World Cruising's Product of the Week is the Jurgan tool-free clevis pin, which has recently won a 2014 Pittman Award for Innovation.

We can't do better than quote you just why they were successful in the Innovation Awards: Although fibre rigging is 'de rigeur' on many modern race boats, most cruisers are still keeping their masts up with wire. And those that do switch to fiber often find that metal turnbuckles remain the easiest way to keep shrouds and stays taut.

This, in turn, means most of us are still messing with clevis pins secured with the same sharp cotter pins that have been ripping up our sails and working lines for the better part of a century.

Enter the Jurgan Tool-Free Clevis Pin, which does away with cotter pins entirely and is secured by a discrete roll pin held in place by an internal spring-loaded piston plunger within the body of the clevis.

As the name suggests, you don’t need pliers or a screwdriver to install or remove these clevis pins, nor do you need to tape them up to protect your sails.

The pins come in 48 different sizes and are CNC-machined out of 316 and 17-4 stainless steel to ensure strength and durability in the marine environment.

From $35. If there are not available at your local marine supplier, you can purchase them online from Crealock Development & Manufacturing, by going to their website

Every year since 1996, the Pittman Innovation awards, sponsored by SAIL magazine, recognize outstanding new products created by the sailing industry.
