Be aware that with the Schaeffer SnapFurl system, once you snap the two long halves together around the headstay, they cannot be unsnapped.
Also, the headstay hole through the foil is very small; a 1x19 wire will fit through, but the swaged end fitting will not.
That means that, should you later want to replace the headstay and retain the foil, you'll have to thread a bare wire through the foil and use a mechanical fitting like a Norseman at the top.
My advise: Install a new headstay before you snap on a PVC foil.
