Sta Lok system

I need to do some work on rigging and was curious if anyone has had experience with Sta Lok systems. I need to replace jib halyard and am looking at possibly changing from swage terminals. Thanks

Sta Lok system

I was curious if anyone had experience any failure or other complications. I''ve read all the pr and understand Lloyds loves them, etc. but actual experience helps my "comfort."

Dear Folks:

I'm doing a re-rig project on a Venture '26. I'm planning to use 3/16", 1x19 stainless wire rope but was looking for advice on terminals. Sta-loks look like they might be easy to work with but I'm a newbie. Any advice would be most appreciated.

Thanks,

If you can handle taking off a tire during a flat. Then you can handle sta-lok.......i2f

20 MPH ain't fast unless, you do it in a 1000sq 3/2 house on 10foot waves

i have a single sta lock on my boat, the starboard shroud bottom. when it comes time to rerig it will get swages at the top and stay locks on the bottom. just order the cables with swages at the top and a little long then you can cut to fit. turns the rigging to a diy job, and you can order the cables from where ever that is cheap ( but good ) by mail

i replaced the headstay on my boat a couple of years ago using a swaged terminal on the top & a staylock stud terminal on the bottom. had to take the harkin roller furling apart to install the stay. it was the first one i had done. i read the harkin manual & staylock instructions, and followed them exactly. it worked out well.

When I re-do my entire rig in the spring I will also get the wire cut a bit long and with swages for the top end. Not sure for the bottom end but it will be either Sta-Lok or a similar fitting. The Hi-Mod fittings from Hayn Marine are interesting and probably deserve a look at but in a re-rig I would not use swages for the bottom end under any circumstances. You can't see what's happening in them and corrosion is an issue.

I would second what mintcakekeith said. Using swages at the top and mechanical fittings at the bottom will save you some money and make things a good deal simpler. I'd also point out that of the mechanical rigging fittings, Hayn Hi-Mods are considerably less expensive and better quality IMHO than the StaLocks. Sailboat hardware, rigging and standing rigging from Rigging Only is an excellent source.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
