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 with thick aluminum plates to spread the load evenly over the shackle pins.
To double an existing multi-purchase vang, you'll need the Boomkicker purchase plate, a single block for the boom and a cascade line or wire. The purchase plates by boom kicker 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.
