Jimmy Green Advisory:
It is a tricky operation to successfully sheath a dyneema chafe sleeve over any line and especially over the LIROS minimum and maximum recommendations.

Useful tips on Slide Protect:

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 into the cover or left external - either way the ends should be covered and secured by a whipping.
Astute positioning of Slide Protect 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
