Rutgerson Launch 1585 Batten Receptacle

This is the new 1585 "hassle free" full batten receptacle by Rutgerson.

Just pull the clip, slide the lid and the batten is free without the use of tools.

Nominated for a DAME award at the METS in 2012, the innovative 1585 is a user-friendly solution for full battens on yachts to 38ft. Designed to accept a standard M10 thread as the connection to a battcar, this versatile receptacle is compatible with both flat battens up to 25mm x 10mm and round battens up to 10mm.

The integrated lid on the 1585 eliminates the need to replace lost parts and a clear tensioning scale and indicator makes for hassle-free tensioning. With only five fastening points and an attachment to secure round battens, the ease of installation makes the 1585 ideal for sailmakers and boat owners alike.
