I bought two new lifeline cushions
to replace the old, mildewed ones on board but can't figure out how to get them on. One side of the lifeline has the pelican clip, which I can't seem to unscrew or loosen, and the other side has a T-shaped fitting and a metal clip that also seems rather immovable. Both of these are far too big to pass through the hole in the lifeline cushion.
I know I'm going about this the wrong way, but I haven't been able to find any info on what exactly that is. How should I proceed here?
