Like the historic Vikings, Rutgerson rope clutches are strong, durable and originate from the North where sailing conditions are tough. Rutgerson rope clutches can take much higher loads than equivalent sizes of other manufacturers on the market due to a unique combination of clever construction and high-quality materials. The housing is made of a black high-tech composite of high strength, whereas the other parts are made of either anodized aluminium or stainless steel.

Our rope clutches have a clever solution for endless lines. Due to the fact that the housing can easily be removed from the mounting plate, the rope clutch can easily be installed on or detached from endless lines such as furling lines. The rope clutch is the only one that can be installed by one person on the deck.

You will find that the handling of the lines much easier with Rutgerson rope clutches. This is because it is the only rope clutch on the market fitted with an integrated low-friction sheave, which ensures that the rope runs smoothly – both when winching and when hauling by hand. Naturally, the clutch allows continued trimming of the rope even when it is in a locked position.

Three sizes available: RC75X for rope diameter 8-12mm; RC120X for rope diameter 10-16mm and RC2000 for rope diameter 8-14mm with high loads.
