Product Description

Harken Micro Fast Release Fairlead

The 494 and 495 Fast Release fairleads feature low-friction, angled stainless steel line guides on the exit side of the cleat. The angled lead keeps the line away from the cam to eliminate unexpected recleats during maneuvers. Use for fast spinnaker take-downs during mark roundings—anywhere fast release is crucial. Harken Cam fairleads are made of tough, abrasion-resistant composite.

Use the 495 with 468 and 471 Micro Cam-Matics®.
