Rutgerson introduces the 'Slide Connector'

Rutgerson introduces the 'Slide Connector'

In November last year, Rutgerson introduced the Slide Connector, a useful and innovative alternative to battcars. The simple but clever product was designed to be used as a linkage between Rutgerson's batten receptacles and pressure absorbing slides. Rutgerson asserted that the slide is a cost-efficient alternative to standard battcars on boats up to 35 feet. The slides are made from stainless steel and black composit, and are designed and manufactured in Sweden. Find more information on the Rutgerson website, or give us a call to make an order.
