New! Battslide Track

Battslide Combination Receptacle #450 and Battslide Combination Receptacle #401 on #803 slides in Battslide Track
Intermediate #885 on standard 3/4" slide.

Battslide's new Mainsail Track System accepts 7/8" flat slides. This is a simple way to replace worn or damaged sail track without re-engineering the sail.

Key features of the new Battslide track are:

  • "C" shape track protects internal sliding surfaces from damage
  • Lightweight anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, pre-drilled for #10 FH fasteners on 3" centers
  • Fits curved and flat mast contours
  • Captive aluminum joints ensure track alignment
  • Removable "track gate" for loading sail, usually installed 25" from bottom end to allow a low slide stack.
  • Smooth glass reinforced nylon end stops
  • For boats from 30 - 45 ft. approx.

This system works with standard Battslide slides, part #803, and our intermediate fittings (#886, 888) working in conjunction with our headboard fitting #844.

The Allslip slides also can be utilized, which work well with our intermediate fittings.
