What Are Cheeky Tangs?

Quite simply, Colligo Marine's patented Cheeky Tangs are a simple & robust way to splice Colligo Dux rigging directly to the mast. They can be used with either standard thru-bolt style mast tangs or adapted for use with t-fittings.

T-fitting Cheeky Tang fittings are identical to Standard Cheeky Tangs in their Critical Dimensions (below). Instead of a thru-bolt, the correct-sized t-fitting adapter is included.

By using Cheeky Tangs, you're eliminating one link in the rigging chain. Typically, on a standard thru-bolt mast tang, the bolt itself is the first link in the chain. Stainless straps are fitted to the bolt, which accept clevis pins to attach the wire rig. By using Cheeky Tangs, you can eliminate that clevis pin, essentially splicing the Dux right to the bolt and removing one link in the chain for simplicity and robustness.

They're also ideal for installing running backstays and inner forestays.
