eliminating topping lift slap 245 Keeps boom up during jiffy reefing 245 Takes load off leech in light air 245 Holds boom up when sail is furled 3 LONG RETURN SPRING 245 Allows generous range of boom angle without adjustment 4 ADJUSTABLE RETURN SPRING 245 Allows optimal settings for a variety of boom configurations 245 Allows readjustment for new mainsails with different leech lengths 5 SIMPLICITY 245 Requires no flopping blocks 245 Requires no hydraulic fuss 6 RAPID ADJUSTMENT 245 Allows superior powering through puffs without broaching 245 Achieves proper vang tension by hand in most conditions 1 QUIKVANG DESIGN 2 QUIKVANG INSTALLATION To ensure proper function the QuikVang requires specific mast and boom fittings Listed below are the reasons for this requirement 245 Boom fitting lug A conventional bail works only in tension it will not allow the QuikVang to support the boom weight 245 Mast fitting gooseneck This will maintain constant tension at each boom swing angle and will support the boom Installation instructions if mast and boom do not have proper fittings If you have the proper fittings skip this section 1 Order QuikVang mast and boom fittings through your dealer properly matching the fittings to the size of your QuikVang 2 Adjust set spring tension adjustment to middle of range CAUTION Never adjust spring tension setting with the vang attached to the boom a Remove set screws b Push knob to desired location c Line up to nearest tapped hole d Reinsert set screws tapped holes are at oneinch intervals NOTE Once mast and boom fittings are installed and spring position is confirmed remove vang ease tackle and reinstall set screws with Blue Loctite250 3 3 Locate mast and boom fitting positions a Attach mast and boom fittings to QuikVang b Attach main halyard to end of boom and lift it to a position slightly above level c Locate mast fitting as low as possible while still allowing clearance with other mast fittings collar boot etc NOTE Do not attach mast fitting at this time d Mark position for mast fitting e Lift vang until boom fitting contacts the boom while holding the mast fitting in place f Check the orientation of the vang for best use by positioning vang about 13 of boom length from gooseneck and positioning vang angle with boom about 25241 to 40241 g Check boom swing for potential contact with hatches dorades etc h Reset spring adjustment and repeat sequence if the QuikVang position does not meet criteria in item f above 4 Attach mast and boom fittings QuikVang mast and boom fittings fit a variety of mast and boom sections However check the suitability for your particular mast before installation NOTE If fittings do not appear to fit contact Hall Spars Rigging for advice Hall Spars Rigging designed and tested mast and boom fitting for tapped screw installation Inherent in our design assumptions are proper drilling and tapping of holes 4 NOTE We strongly advise hiring a professional rigger if you are unsure of proper drilling and tapping procedures for vang fitting installation MAST FITTING 1 Mark and check positions of mast and boom fittings 2 Hold mast fitting at position marked 3 Center mast fitting side to side 4 Mark uppermost port and starboard holes 5 Drill and tap two uppermost holes fastener size 14 x 20 x 58323 flat head machine screw 6 Fasten mast fitting to mast with two top fasteners NOTE Do not tighten fasteners at this stage of installation 7 Center the bottom of the mast fitting 8 Mark carefully for bottommost holes 9 Drill and tap bottom holes with fitting in place 10 Install fasteners as in step f above 11 Drill and tap remaining holes 12 Install fasteners while checking fit 13 Remove all fasteners and clean out chips behind mast fittings 14 Install mast fitting while applying Blue Loctite to each fastener 15 Tighten all fasteners BOOM FITTING 1 Check chosen position 2 Drill and tap fore and aft end holes fastener size 14 x 20 x 1323 socket head cap screw 3 Install end fasteners 4 Drill and tap remaining holes 5 Check for proper fit 6 Remove all screws and clean out chips from behind fitting 7 Install fitting while applying Blue Loctite to all fasteners 8 Tighten all fasteners 5 Installation Instructions if Mast and Boom Appear to Have Proper Fittings 1 Check Fittings to determine that vang fits a Hole size If too small open up making sure that 322meat323 around hole is enough see diagram b Lug thickness If much smaller than QuikVang jaw opening contact Hall Spars Rigging 2 Lift boom up to just above level 3 Measure pin to pin length between boom fitting and mast fitting 4 Remove spring adjuster set screws from vang see vang adjustment procedure on page 3 5 Set vang at pin to pin length dimension as determined in step 3 above 6 Install spring adjuster set screws in nearest tapped holes 7 Temporarily install QuikVang to check length 8 Remove QuikVang from boom fitting 9 Remove set screws and install with Blue Loctite NOTE Do not remove spring adjuster set screws with QuikVang installed 10 Install QuikVang CAUTION Beware of oversheeting the main If the QuikVang bottoms out while trimming the mainsheet compression can bend the boom in reverse This situation can also cause the vang to fail in compression bending CAUTION Never lean on the end of the boom with a furled sail Your weight creates a great load on the vang if it bottoms out The same compression failure could occur as discussed in the previous caution note See Helpful Hint on next page 6 HELPFUL HINTS It325s always good practice to attach the main halyard to the end of the boom after furling the sail This procedure allows the tightening of the mainsheet and removes the risk of damage to the QuikVang Put a knot in the tackle line at the maximum open position This is the position just before the wire dead end of the purchase reaches its turning sheave This way the wire will not jam in the turning sheave when releasing the vang MAINTENANCE As with any marine fitting especially when exposed to salt water the QuikVang requires regular maintenance and inspection On a semiannual basis the following maintenance should be performed CAUTION All maintenance should be done on the vang only after it is removed form the bottom and the tackle is totally relaxed Remove all screws and lubricate with FEL PRO C5A or similar antiseize lubricant Left alone stainless screws will freeze themselves in aluminum parts Regularly check all screws especially spring tension set screwsbacking out Lubricate surface of spring with Lubriplate or similar grease to eliminate creaking of spring Very little lubricant is required321do not over do Regularly check to make sure all sheaves rotate freely and lubricate with WD 40 Regularly check wire cascade for wear If frayed replace at once 7 PARTS LIST ITEM PART NUMBER DESCRIPTION 1 PR8673 Upper Tube 2 PR8552 Slider Plug 3 HSM10NFX14 Hex Socket Machine 1032 x 14 3 4 PR8668B Lower Tube 5 PR8553 Slider Sleeve
