It's just a clamp to go around a rag that has some cleaner on it . Attach a halyard and a downhaul . Yes you have to get in the chair to get above the spreaders .

Man!...If I lived in a house instead of a sailboat you'd have me scrubbing out my mailbox! It's just not going to happen!

Oh yes Captain , And after you get done with the soapy rag then you put some Never Dull cotton wadding in there and do it all over again !

If you're already in the chair/harness, might as well wipe down the rig. Doesn't take that long and it's good for it. :)

You wash your deck, scrub the bottom, and I'm assuming, wash your lines right?

If your rig gets dirty enough to need that much cleaning, you should probably go sailing more often. Sailing, especially in the rain or if there's a lot of spray, seems to work just fine.

Hi zz , I'm not really sure what you are talking about . Because this is a rig cleaner that wipes/scrubs down the rig . First I use it for all the rigging that I can do from the deck . And then I get in the chair to get it above the spreaders and finish the job . It really makes the whole job much easier . And yes zz I wash my lines too. Happy holidays everyone !

The lower rigging probably takes the brunt of the salt spray, anyway. Nice idea. Please post in "Low Buck Projects" if you haven't.

My statement was directed to those who do not wipe down their rigging.

OK, guys that think this should go in low buck projects . Although this is a low buck thing .
It is also a piece of gear that effects maintenance . Ergo Gear and Maintenance .

Mark,
Sorry, I didn't phrase my comment properly. I think this is REALLY COOL and should be added to the LBP thread. I really like that thread because it shows a lot of neat jigs that people have built for various purposes, and I thought this would fit in perfectly. It is really handy to have all of those neat ideas collected into a single place, and thought his would be a good addition. I hadn't intended to suggest that this didn't deserve its own thread, that this thread should be deleted, etc. Sorry if I gave you the wrong impression!
