Harken Traveler Maintenance

This notice affects the high load mainsheet traveler cars (HK2757).

These cars have been in use for a few years and in the recent months of sailing we have seen failures as a result of the nuts on top of the saddle coming loose.

It is unclear if the nuts have not been tightened correctly from the factory or they are coming loose over time. In either scenario it is important that you regularly check these are tight with a 10mm (3/8 inch) spanner.

Please make this a part of your daily maintenance check before you go sailing.
