Harken Gizmos - Padeye Kit © Harken

Harken now offers Gizmos, a growing line of engineered soft-attach terminations and through-deck pieces. Gizmos acknowledge riggers' desires to minimize weight and eliminate as much heavy metal as possible.

We offer single-sided through-deck bushings to protect decks and lines from chafing when used in through-deck applications. Double-sided through-deck bushings are also available and are perfect for installing soft-attach loops to protect lines from wear and also to keep them separate.

Padeye kits include a cross pin, waterproof cap and O-ring to convert a double-sided bushing into a through-deck, watertight padeye. The cross pin attaches the rope/loop and the cap snaps over the top to keep water out. The bushing and loop are sold separately.

Harken's reputation for precise manufacturing assures the Gizmos are precision-sized and fit together perfectly when assembled. Our distribution network guarantees Gizmos are available in the quantities needed—when they are needed. The bushings and padeye kits are just the beginning, more will be coming as customers request them.
