Compression Tubes


Compression Tubes are often used with bolts in Mast applications, especially under Spreader Bases and bolted Tangs. Cut to the width of the Mast, they prevent Mast compression caused by over tightening a bolt, or by excessive Spreader forces. They are sometimes used with bolts for Boom Bails.
Standard size Compression Tubes are listed below, other sizes and lengths are available - please specify dimensions when inquiring.
