Rigtube for transporting dinghy spars and rolled sails

RIGTUBE™ is available in 3 lengths: Standard 3m, 3.7m and 2.5m


• The 160 mm diameter tube allows a complete set of spars for Laser*, Topper or Optimist** or rolled sails to be safely stowed inside the RIGTUBE™
* Laser top section of mast requires longer 3.7m RIGTUBE™
**tube length can be reduced to 2.5m on request to suit Optimist if short trailer is being used

• For added security, the stainless steel toggle clamps which hold the end cap in place, can be locked with a small padlock available as an optional extra

Rigtube locked by small brass padlock

•The removable end cap is fitted with a lanyard, so you don’t lose the cap!

• For add safety the front and rear end caps have a reflector held in place with a rivet

• The front nose cap is foam filled, and riveted in place to reduce the risk of the sailing rig breaking through the cap under heavy braking when travelling

• The black PVCu plastic tube has a tough 3.2mm wall made to BS EN1329

• RIGTUBE™ has an approx weight of 9.5kgs

• RIGTUBE™ has additives in PVCu plastic for added UV light protection. However, in time some fading may occur, and we recommend the use of a car bumper product like Back to Black to revitalise the appearance

• For mounting, the British Standard BS EN 12056-2: 2000 recommends that the pipe should be supported at 1.2m intervals
