Double Clevis Tangs

Flange Bushings
SS Flange Bushings are used in Shroud Tang applications to achieve maximum weight reduction without any attendant reduction in bearing surface of the Tang fastener against the mast wall. Flange Bushings are used to replace larger bolts with smaller bolts, as in these applications it is not the tensile strength of the bolt, but the shear strength of the larger diameter bearing surface that is important.



Bearing Plates
Bearing Plates are used to reinforce the mast wall, spreading the loading of a single bolt attachment out over a greater surface area by using additional fasteners. Normally used in conjunction with a single bolt Shroud Tang.



Specialty Tangs


Delta (Triangle) Plates
Delta, or Triangle Plates are primarily used to separate the Main (upper) Leg from the 2 Lower Legs in Split Backstay applications.
