An override on a winch can become a big problem if you don’t have the right solution. The Spinlock ZS/OPEN is a mobile jammer that allows you to transfer a loaded line or sheet onto a different winch to fix the override, rearrange a bad lead, or deal with a spinnaker peel. Simply attach the Spinlock unit to the loaded sheet, close the unit’s jaws (jammer), and transfer the load. The semicustom unit is available in different sizes to accommodate different line diameters. Aluminum or carbon fiber, from $1,275. Oceanair Marine LTD, 802-362-5258, www.spinlock.co.uk
