Sailboat Deck Fairleads
Fairleads are a simple and economical means of containing, deflecting or correcting the lead angle of control lines. Fairleads are used to deflect sheets and control lines to provide a "fair lead" to winches, clutches or cleats. Other common applications of fairleads include tweaker control on small keelboats and jib sheets on dinghys. Use fairleads when lines need to be deflected a small amount. When deflecting lines over a large angle, use blocks.
