Are you talking about the ones that encircle the stancheon?

Did you read the linked thread where I discussed the various options available and explained why I swapped out our old Schaeffer leads, i.e. because they were "ankle biters"? I think the photo immediately above (from my boat) clearly demonstrates the problem.

I was referring to the old style more so than the newer outboard "Clear Step" version by Schaeffer (i.e. the ones that "encircle the stanchion"). But I still think the Harken OSLBAs have an advantage in that they really do not protrude inboard of the stanchions, minimizing the possibility of clipping ankles.
