For Sale: Wichard Backstay Adjuster

I also have this listed on Ebay if you prefer paying w/ paypal. Just search for Backstay Adjuster & it should come up.

The Price is $799
If you want to call, I'm Larry: 843 379-2370

I bought this Wichard 5565 backstay adjuster a few years ago to rig as the tensioner for a removable inner-forestay. It will work great in that capacity as well as a backstay adjuster. I never rigged the removable stay. This adjuster has sat on the shelf in my house since it's purchase. This model features a smooth running rachet mechanism that is very easy to operate. I hate to sell it, because it is such a beautiful piece of marine engineering that I love just simply looking at it. The street price on these usually runs between $1,300 and $1,600. My loss is your gain. This adjuster uses a 1/2 inch diameter pin.
I guarantee this hardware to be in new condition.
Please make sure this fits your rigging before you buy

Wichard Backstay Adjuster Correction

Sailors,
Upon closer inspection I determined that my Wichard Backstay Adjuster is actually a model 5567. That means that the pin diameter is 9/16 or 14mm instead of the previously stated 1/2.


Here's the technical stuff again.
  • Length Pin to Pin Closed: 17-5/16
  • Length Pin to Pin Open: 26
  • Toggle Length x Width In.: 11/16 x 7/8
  • Dia Pin In.: 14mm or 9/16
  • Handling Lbs.: 5500
  • Funct Lbs.: 12125
  • Break Load Lbs.: 14750
  • Dia Stud In.: 9/16
  • For Wire In.: 9/32-5/16
Sorry for any confustion. I tried to edit my previous post, but for the life of me, I couldn't fine the darn edit button. Call or e-mail if you have any questions. Thanks - Larry 843 379-2370 svsafari@aol.com
