Have you ever struggled to reach the highest reef point or the top of the sail cover? Do you dread going up the mast, or winching somebody else up?  Well now there's a quick and simple solution, the new "lightweight, rattle free, aesthetic, strong and foldable" mast steps. These steps are easily fitted to the mast providing safe and secure footholds while climbing or working at the mast. Fitting two at the top of the mast allows you to work without the struggle from the bosuns chair.

Mast StepThe "Mast Step" is manufactured from a special combination of "Nylon/Glass fibre" which together with its design gives the step enormous strength. A 3% additive makes the mast step UV resistant and prevents material degradation. The steps weigh only 165 grams each,  they will not add weigh aloft, and when folded do not snag ropes or sails due to the 'snag-free' design. At anchor or on a mooring the steps do not rattle in the wind and there is a choice of colours to match the mast - white, black and grey. 

The steps are placed on opposite sides of the mast with a recommended spacing of 375mm and two opposite each other 1200mm down from the top of the mast for stable and safe working on sheaves, halyards and masthead instruments. Due to its construction and  the materials used,  it is easy to adjust the step to fit the radius of the mast. Simply tape a sheet of sand paper at the position where the step is to be fitted, rub the saddle of the step up and down until the step snugly fit's the mast curvature. When using the steps to climb the mast, one simply unfolds the steps in front as one ascends and folds them behind him as you descend the mast. The steps also provide a secure foothold but it is always strongly recommended to use a harness with a safety line attached.
