The 18 mm Switch T-Track Batten Car bodies are built
of fiberreinforced, lubricated plastic that is UVstabilized
with black additive for maximum
protection. 18 mm high-load car bodies are
machined aluminum with low-friction Delrin® sliders. Aluminum
cars and T-Track are hardcoat-anodized for durability.

Q&A: Why do I want a switch
A Switch Battcar system cuts stack
height in half, so putting on a sail
cover or connecting/disconnecting
your halyard is a much easier task.
The system works by alternately
dropping mainsail cars onto port
and starboard storage racks.
Headboard cars articulate
and pass through the switch,
reducing stack height even more.
