\'Sail stops\', Help needed where to buy them

I think I have called them correctly but not 100% sure.
I want to buy the stop that fits into the slide at the back of the main mast to stop the nylon sail guides coming out, is this the right name to call them?.
Masts are by 'Sailspar' , boat is a Colvic Watson.
Tried one or two web sites but no reply.
Any advice of correct name and where to buy them appreciated

Since the sail slides are sometimes called "slugs" perhaps what you want are "slug stops" /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

G'day Mike,

You may notice a small hole drilled across the mast sail track just above the section that opens out to allow the sliders to come out.

If so, you only need a pin with a toggle on the end to stop the mast sliders getting too low.

They are sail track stops.

Those shown above are made by Davis and marketed in the UK by Unipart Marine formerly Mark Dowland Marine . The rounded one is their part number 181410 and they supply a large number of UK chandlers so even if you can't find one in stock, you should be able to get it ordered for you. I have one on my mast.

Just found them on Force 4's web site . They have all three types.

Cool, I didn't know these existed all my boats in the past and others I've sailed on have had a screw on a bit of twine to stop the sail.

Getting one whatever boat I get next.
