The 494 Fast Release fairlead features low-friction, angled stainless steel line guides on the exit side of the cleat. The angled lead keeps the line away from the cam to eliminate unexpected recleats during maneuvers. Use for fast spinnaker take-downs during mark roundings—anywhere fast release is crucial. Harken Cam fairleads are made of tough, abrasion-resistant composite. Use the 494 fairlead with the 150 Cam-Matic® and 365 Carbo-Cam®.
