Why the heck would anyone need two of these alongside each other when you can only use one?
If one breaks, you are instantly back in business.
Clicked on over to that video and recognized it immediately. You now have the same vang as me and Greg.Mine is the Allen model, so a bit different than the Harken, but I just spent some time watching another guy do his Allen on YouTube and I think mine is now done right!
My boat has sailed for over 38 years with the old straight vang key. And it's one of the few parts that have NOT broken all this time.There is a class rule that explicitly allows two vang keys. I believe it's a relic from the straight-key-only era, as the straight version is fundamentally more prone to breaking due to not being designed for the current key fitting.
Does anyone know of a bent key having ever broken?
