Spinnaker or Whisker Pole Toggle & Knuckle Assembly (Toggle Style)

Part #: Z5509
Spinnaker pole or whisker pole toggle and knuckle (pin) assembly for socket style end fittings typical for applications for boats 35' to 70', or for the Catalina 350s and larger.

Looked into as an option for some Catalina owers with earlier rigs with existing specialty cars for which they would like to be able to use with newer poles.

Does not include car, see our Z5145 for assembly for use on a 1-1/4" track.

1) For use with our T2027 car used on earlier masts that included a built in section on which the cars could ride on the front of the mast you will need to make sure the following fit issues are addressed:
    • Bushing to cover differences in vertical pin diameters, or the 1/2" hole versus 10mm (~3/8") OD pin on car
    • Shims to prevent any movement up and down between the inside ears of car and top and bottom of the toggle
    • Possible reshaping or creation of your own bumper to limit the travel of the toggle

2) When you order a special order item it sets off a chain of events like Willie Wonka in the chocolate factory. Once you turn the valve the chocolate is coming down the pipe. If you then decide you want caramel, the chocolate is still going to come out of the pipe. We can't put the Chocolate back in the pipe, so someone is going to have to eat it, and it's not going to be us! Your order can't be canceled, returned, or magically changed into caramel, so please order carefully the first time!

3) A 50% nonrefundable deposit will be billed when your order for this item is accepted. The balance will be billed when the product ships.
