Thanks Heinzer, I have been looking for a simple and reliable way to make a single sheet removable to use with multiple sails. We have not had our boat long, but I quickly tired of pulling the the sheets out of the blocks every time I changed sails and having to re-rig the whole thing.

I did come up with a temporary fix for last summer, but ended up with a large knot flailing around in the wind which did land a few good blows, enough to let me know that was NOT a long term solution.

Thanks!
