Help! Deadeyes and rings issue. Mamoli Constitution Kit


Recommended Posts

You can make your own dead eye rings out of wire or black thread.  Simply wrap them around the dead eye, mount them and you should be good to go.


Hope this helps,

The deadeye rings are fixed, not flexible so can insert the deadeyes.  Attempting to bend results in the eye breaking.  Help!

I feel your pain. I have sanded one side of the deadeye and then squeezed it into the stroup using needle nose pliers. PITA. So now I just use black wire and make my own. MUCH less frustrating. Good luck.
