What's this called?

I have three halyard lines, which all run down internally through the mast. For the main halyard and one of the jib halyards, the exit point is simply a rectangular slot in the mast. One of these looks like the wire has been wearing the mast.

However, the other jib halyard has a stainless cover plate. I think of it as a "halyard gate" but can not find one in any online marine store.

What are they called? Is there another name to search by? I took photos today (and re-sized to 40k) but can't seemk to uploard for some reason.

Thanks

Hey,

Do you know who made your mast? RigRite has OEM type parts for many rig manufacturers. I was able to buy the correct exit plates for my Isomast rig, and they just snapped right in.

Rig-Rite Inc. - Masts, Booms, Spars, Rigging, and Hardware for Sailboats.

Note that if you call rigrite they can be a little harsh on the phone but they do have the parts.

This is a good suggstion but, in my experience, Rig Rite so over charges, that I view the company as a last resort. E.g., I recently needed a small part for which they quoted nearly $10 USD. By persistent searching on the internet I found the OEM and was able to obtain the same part for $1.49 (I bought several!).

FWIW...
