Broken Roller Furler Foot attachment

Out on my new (to me) H27 yesterday and the foot of my jib came loose. I had no previous idea on how it was attached, but I made do and used my keychain and a carabiner (also from my keychain) to temporarily reattach.

I attached a picture. How is this supposed to look? Any ideas?

Usually a screw or captured pin shackle, sometimes a short piece of line "with a purchase " is used, called a pennant, easier to adjust the height that way.

Re: Broken Roller Furler Foot attachment

looks like a harken Mk IV. there should be a shackle with the pin through the hole where you have the key ring.

Re: Broken Roller Furler Foot attachment

I have a swivel snap shackle like this one on my Harken furler.



I am one of those guys that doesn't believe in storing the headsail on the furling all year, so the snap shackle makes it quicker and easier to take on and off.
