I forget the name of:

I forget the name in English of that lines it is possible to install that prevent the mainsail to fall in the water when you drop it.

Sorry for the post, but I need to ask to someone to install it, but I totally forget how to say that. :/

Re: I forget the name of:

Lazy Jacks are the name of the network of lines on either side of the boom which cradle the mainsail on top of it, to prevent it from falling off & onto the deck, or into the water. Also, it's sometimes spelled Lazy Jax, or Lazy-Jacks, & similar.

Does that sound/look correct?
