High resistance body Halyard locks improve flying sail use (Staysail/Gennaker) saving weight and reducing mast compression loads. This simple and efficient device makes the halyard locking/unlocking easy and safe. The Facnor lock tremendously eases the handling of flying forestays (2-to-1 no longer required). It can be fitted either inside or outside the mast.

>> Halyard / Mast : 50% reduced load With the locking device, the halyard load is transferred to the lock, reducing nearly by half

this compression and allowing lighter mast.

 

>> Reduction of the boat heel/windage widely fitted on raceboats, the lock reduces the boat heel and windage, even in cruising.

 

 >> Reliable mechanisms 

 

  

 

 >> Luff constantly tight (constant tension) : wind pressure increases are not absorbed by the halyard elasticity.

 

Different possibilities of use :

- Gennaker or code zero

- Staysail fitted on textile forestay

- Staysail fitted on furler with flying wire forestay

 

>> Options : Fitted-in sensors : «upwards stop» and «locked»,

Various terminals available With toggle directly fitted-in (swivel)


EXTERNALLY FITTED LOCKED

It can be fixed onto one head attachment with an articulated device (toggle, latching, Unibal ball or others). The halyard can then run down inside or outside the mast

  • Fixed locking device and mobile pin 
  • Locking swivel with fixed pin / removable swivel

INTERNALLY FITTED LOCK

in this case, the external body of the lock is directly laminated (composite mast) or riveted/bolted onto the front head of the mast. The luff reaches an optimum length. The halyard runs down directly inside the mast.
