Cheeky Tang Fittings by Colligo Marine

by Colligo Marine 3 Dec 2022 12:43 PST

The "right" way to connect synthetic shrouds to your mast! Colligo Marine's patented Cheeky Tang® fittings are a simple & robust way to splice Colligo Dux rigging directly to the mast. They can be used with either standard thru-bolt style mast tangs or adapted for use with t-fittings.

By using Cheeky Tang® fittings, you're eliminating one link in the rigging chain. Typically, on a standard thru-bolt mast tang, the bolt itself is the first link in the chain. Stainless straps are fitted to the bolt, which accept clevis pins to attach the wire rig.

By using Cheeky Tang® fittings, you can eliminate that clevis pin, essentially splicing the Dux right to the bolt and removing one link in the chain for simplicity and robustness.

They're also ideal for installing running backstays and inner forestays.

Head over to the Colligo Marine shop to explore our patented Cheeky Tang!
