These Midrange Captive Bearing Traveler Cars do not come with a factory installed purchase configuration for traveler car adjustment. You can add a purchase system to an existing car (up to a max. of 4:1) using the 27 mm Purchase Upgrade Kit; see Related Products, below.
Proper choice of purchase allows easy adjustment of the car using a single line and no winch. High-strength Torlon® ball bearings run on machined, Hardkote-anodized, Teflon® impregnated races for smooth trimming and easing.
These cars have a simple shackle for attaching the mainsheet block to the car. The car is designed so it is possible to upgrade the shackle to a stand-up toggle, if desired.
