I heard of someone who fastened a little U-shaped hook a few inches in on the back side of his spreaders. When he dropped his sail, he just gave the halyard a little flick to secure it inside the u-hook, and then put a few turns on the winch for some tension. Supposedly, the halyard never again smacked the mast.
