Bearing Design: Open For Life
Schaefer's Torlon™ bearings cannot corrode and ride in open, easily accessible races that don't require lubrication. These proven, high compression strength bearings provide low friction, and need only periodic flushing with water.

Headstay Adjustment:
Schaefer Systems utilize the Catalina headstay and turnbuckle giving full turnbuckle adjustability, and optimum performance.

The heavy-duty base toggle/link articulates to absorb side loads that might otherwise cause turnbuckle fatigue. The turnbuckle is attached to the base toggle/link and is housed by the system, easily accessible.
