Functionality and elegance
in purest form
The Carbon snuffer
The snuffer collar made of carbon filaments unites two extremes – maximal structural sturdiness and minimal weight.
The doubly curvilinear funnel form and the specially developed, ultra-light netting captivate through their low frictional resistance,
and make hoisting and lowering little more than child’s play. The surrounding ABS-protective edge prevents any damage whatsoever, whether to the collar or to the rigging. Combined with the non-slip snuffer lines from LIROS® and external line guiding, a comfortable and secure handling is guaranteed.
The OXLEY® carbon snuffer is available in three sizes, and can be combined with a special bag, which imitates the form of the collar. This combination guaranties a very small size for storage as the bag itself can be reduced in height using adjustable straps.
To use the Carbon Snuffer
Unroll the snuffer alongside the Spinnaker/Gennaker to insure that leech and luff is aligned according to the snuffers edges.
Grap the Snuffer head webbing with one hand and the carbon funnel with the other hand as shown.
Attach the snuffer “head-webbing” to the Spinnaker/Gennaker top clew with a shackle.
Pull the entire snuffer over the sail up to the Spinnaker/Gennaker lower clews.
The additional OXLEY® carrying case is the proof that there is a high degree of potential for optimization even in seemingly trivial products. It captivates with its oval base and high-quality craftsmanship. The inner bottom and the bottom side faces are lined with styrofoam and covered with an abrasion-resistant material. With laterally attached compression belts, the volume can be reduced to a third of its full size – an important argument for optimal usage of storage space.
