Insulated standing rigging provides the ideal antenna for radio transmission and reception. Sta-lok Insulators have proven themselves over many years to be an effective and totally reliable method of converting yacht backstays into radio antenna. The main body of the Sta-lok Insulator consists of an ingenious stainless steel assembly.The whole is embedded ia a weather-proof nylon injection moulding designed to exceed the breaking load of the wire rope.
The Sta-lok terminal is a simple mechanical method of terminating wire ropes. It will work under constant load and variable shock loading and is stronger than the wire rope. In all situations the Sta-lok Terminal has proven totally reliable. The Sta-lok Terminal is manufactured from 316 stainless steel grade 1.4401, and can be fitted on site using very simple hand tools. All Sta-lok Terminals are reusable and are supplied with wedges as standard.
