ROTOSTAY Furling

I have a ROTOSTAY furler fitted to my foresail.

It's been stiff in operation so this weekend a friend climbed the mast and had a look at it, he freed the halyard ( it was twisted) and the system is now much easier to use. It is the 'return' halyard type-probably 25 years old.

Rotostay are no longer in bisiness so have had difficulty finding any information.

MY QUESTION:- The top of the FOIL is 'open' no cover / stopper. Is this norman or should there be some sort of protection here ?

Hope you can help.
