One suggestion, Checkstays usually have a shockchord retractor that pull the lazy checkstay out of the way of the mainsail when released. There are two kinds, the first pulls the stay towards the spreaders and the second pull them up towards the backstay. I generally prefer the second kind but they don't always work with all geometries.
