Friction Ring Dimensions

The outside line diameter will accept an attachment line (of suitable quality) larger than necessary to fulfil any running rigging application.

Barton lightweight high load eyes are suitable for a variety of uses on board:

  • Lazy Jacks
  • Barber haulers
  • Backstay cascades
  • Mast base tidies
  • Stanchion lead eyes
  • Emergency blocks
  • Toe rail blocks 
  • In fact anywhere that a line needs re-routing under static load

The smallest size can be attached using a 3mm line with a bullseye diameter of 6mm.
The largest size can be attached using a 16mm line with a bullseye diameter of 28mm.

Barton High Load Eyes are ideal for combining with a Dyneema loop making a fast, efficient, simple and extremely strong solution to changing the direction of any line.

Hard Spectro anodised aluminium is very light, has extremely good wear resistance and very low friction.
