Rutgerson is launching two of its most popular clutches in a new version optimised for thinner lines.

The RC75 and RC120 have the same high working load as the original clutches: 750 kg for the smaller model and 1200 kg for the larger.

“As modern lines are getting stronger, many boat owners are tempted to choose a thinner line dimension on their halyards,” said Charlotte Rutgerson, Rutgerson MD.

“This often results in slipping clutches, which can have a large impact on the boat’s performance, forcing many boat owners to switch to smaller clutches with a lower working load than desired.”


The new clutches are fitted with the same integrated sheave as the standard version.

They also have the same mounting plate for easier installation when upgrading.

On the smaller model, RC75, the cam can be replaced for upgrading. This is available as a spare part.

The new RC75 is optimised for lines between 4-8 mm, compared to 8-12 mm on the standard version.

The new RC120 is adapted for 8-12 mm lines versus 10-16 mm on the standard clutch.

Both models are available as single, double and triple clutches.

The RC75 can also be ordered as quintuple.
