The Brolga Shroud Adjusters are a breakthrough in quick rig adjustment – just grab the knurled cap and start twisting/adjusting. The top swage studs ride on ball bearings inside the knurled cap which allows the adjuster body to rotate freely and not twist your shroud. Dyform wire aids in preventing shroud rotation while making adjustment due to it stiff twist properties. Once you have finished your adjustments, simply screw the knurled lock nut into place.
To insure easy adjustments, on each race day you will need to lubricate the adjusting screw thread plus clearance gap between the swaging shaft and top round bearing housing with marine lanoline spay. These are the upgraded MkII that include knurled cap, larger ball bearings, larger diameter adjusting screw (was8mm, now 10mm)., adjusting screw manufactured from Nitronic 60 stainless steel which has anti gawling qualities.
