Boomkicker - Purchase Plates for
Boom Vangs - Overview
Based on findings, at least 90% of Boomkicker customers do not increase
the purchase of their vang. If the vang was easy enough to pull before
installing the Boomkicker, it's usually fine after. However for customers
looking to get more power out of the vang, purchase plates are a relatively
easy and affordable way to double the power without buying a whole
new block and tackle system. No drilling required. Two sizes available
thick aluminum plates to spread the load evenly over the shackle pins.
To double an existing multi-purchase vang, you'll need the purchase
plate, a single block for the boom and a cascade line or wire.
The purchase plates come standard with a straight D shackle for the mast
attachment, but twist shackles are available if needed for orientation.
The cascade line should be a high tech, low stretch line or wire. The
single for the boom needs to be designed
for the load and either the line or wire.
