The Jimmy Green Rigging Sales Team are happy to advise you on the Custom Build process for ordering your webbing jackstays.

Follow the Jimmy Green Custom Build Process to get an instant quote and complete the order yourself

  • Option 1 - Choose your sewn loop option - not making a selection will result in a basic heat gun cut
  • Option 2 - Pick a webbing by strength and colour and enter your finished length - This will be the length from bearing edge to bearing edge
  • Option 3 - Choose your sewn loop option for the other end - not making a selection will result in a basic heat gun cut

Once you have made your selection in all the drop-down boxes available, our website will generate:

  1.      a picture version of what you have chosen
  2.      an overall length
  3.      a price including VAT, or excluding VAT if you are signed in with an export delivery address

Don't forget to add 2 jackstays to your basket if you require a pair.

Jimmy Green Sewing Team Finished Length Advisory

The website will accept a length to 3 decimal points. However, this is not practicable for webbing.

The Jimmy Green Sewing Team aim to produce jackstay lengths to the nearest centimetre i.e. to two decimal points.

However, because webbing has a degree of stretch at relatively low load, Jimmy Green Marine can only accept responsibility for the final measurement as follows:
< 5 metres accuracy overall to the nearest 25mm.
> 5 metres accuracy overall to plus or minus 0.5% e.g. 6 metres = 30mm, 8 metres = 40mm, 10 metres = 50mm


Measuring your Webbing Jackstays
Webbing has a degree of stretch even at low load.
Webbing jackstays should be fitted so that there is a degree of lift in the centre of the line before any significant load is applied.
The height of the lift should be proportional to the overall length of the jackstay.
Webbing Jackstays should be fitted taut to prevent too much slack when a body weight load is applied.

  • Request a fitting to be sewn in that is not in the custom build drop down menu
  • Request a different sewn loop length

Jimmy Green Additional Fitting Advisory
When a fitting is requested from outside the custom build process, it will be assumed that the finished length is measured to the bearing edge of the additional fitting(s)
In other words, the finished length will include any shackles, hooks or fittings.
The same principle applies to special requests for different lengths of loop.


The Jimmy Green Sewing Team Finished Length Process for Webbing

Webbing has a degree of stretch even at low load.

  1. Stitch one end
  2. Connect the stitched end to a shackle with a large, robust, measuring tape attached, lay the webbing out taut, but not stretched along the floor/trough
  3. Identify and mark the turning point for the sewn loop at the other end of the webbing
  4. Complete the second stitched loop
  5. Check the finished length against your order

Taut, not Stretched means that the webbing is pulled out straight, but not stretched tight with excessive force.

Quality Control
The Jimmy Green Sewing Team undertake to check your webbing meticulously during the production process to ensure that it is 100% First Quality.

The Jimmy Green Despatch Team make a second thorough quality inspection of each item, including a careful check that it matches your order, before packing it into your parcel.

Additional Information
The finished length is measured from the bearing edge to the bearing edge = the inside face of a loop/shackle where a shackle pin would take the load and therefore NOT the overall outside length.

The sewing price includes the extra webbing required to form and stitch the loop and meet the overall finished length.

For the Makefast Adjuster Loop, the bearing edge is the inside of the 30cm loop formed by reeving through the adjuster and pulled out straight.
The webbing required to form the loop is included in the price

The Bearing Edge:
