Easylock Rope Clutches


Easylock Rope Clutches
Easylock Rope Clutches (Halyard or Sheet Stoppers, or Line Jammers) have been in production for over 25 years, and now come in 4 varieties to fit most any application. Years of extensive testing and refinement have resulted in a series of strong and extremely reliable Clutches that are reasonably priced.  All units are designed to be mounted with the handles forward to minimize the possibility of inadvertent release. Replacement Handles and Parts for the units below, and for older models, are listed separately, See Easylock Replacement Handles and Parts.
