{Stus-List} Disimilar Metals

That is  a novel idea, and bungee cords are on my current list, seems my
foredeck looses a few a year. Most of the halyards would be on the forward
edge of the spreader, tho, I would be worried about catching either a
flogging jib on it or other unintended lines - which side do you have them
And I see what you mean, not much to them, I would have a hard time spending
20 bucks on a pair of them as well.

I guess I should have been more explicit.
The item is called a "halyard J hook" manufactured by C.S. Johnson Marine.
It is installed near the end of the spreaders and you flick your halyard
around the hook and the shackle to the base of the mast.  This keeps the
halyards away from the mast and stops that annoying halyard slap in the
middle of the night.  We installed one and it really works -- no bungee
cords to break or rot.
Lee Valley has a similar item in their hardware catalog made of
nickel-plated steel and they look identical except for material.  The photo
appears to have plating inside the machined holes indicating they may be
manufactured and then plated instead of drilling through the plating.
