At $30 a pop it's probably just as cheap to replace them if I have to start buying a lot of replacement parts.

olson34 It's been a decade since, but when my spendy Harken traveler block system started failing, I sent it to them to rebuild. ( I expected to pay for work done.)
They sent it back with some of the old parts replaced.... and marked the invoice "no charge."
Nice folks.
IMHO, they invest a lot into R&D, and stand behind their products.

Times might have changed, but often a polite inquiry asking for advice on what bits to rebuild or replace will get you at least helpful advice, and sometimes a lot more.

Harken Cam Cleat

The cam cleats on my boat are all starting to lose their ability to grip the rope. Is there a way to fix them or do I just buy new cleats and replace the old ones. Also my Harken traveller has two cam cleats on it that are completely wore out. Can these be replace/fixed or do I need to buy a new traveller assembly?
