Rod Spreader Bends


Spreader Bends are used on continuous Rigging to hold the Spreader Tip in place and to provide better strain relief thus increasing fatigue life of the Rod. Spreader Bends are slid onto the Rod, positioned carefully, then the Rod and Spreader Bend are bent permanently to the correct angle of deflection. See also, other Rod Rigging Components.
