Jimmy Green Advisory:

It is a tricky operation to successfully sheath a dyneema chafe sleeve over any line and especially over the Marlow minimum and maximum recommendations.
Buying according to the chart below may make the task a little easier and result in a tidier finish

Useful tips on Chafe Sleeve:
Take particular care not to snag a strand or upset the weave more than necessary.
Open up the diameter of the sleeve and gently push onto the end of the line as far it will go easily.
Then smooth the sleeve forward imitating a 'concertina' or 'caterpillar' movement.
Once the sleeve is in position, use a leather glove to smooth it outward from the middle to compress it over the line as tightly as possible.
Secure each end by separating and tapering the sleeve.
The taper can be inserted in to the cover or left external - either way the ends should be covered and secured by a whipping.

Astute positioning of Dyneema Chafe Sleeve is well worth the effort for offshore and ocean cruising, extending the life of your halyards, sheets and control lines.

Please note, this type of sleeving is not suitable for use in clutches and jammers.

For extra grip and wear resistance in clutches, use LIROS Grip Protect
