How to use a Luggage Tag Eye

The luggage tag eye splice. Have no rigging idea what that means? Read on…

The luggage tag eye is a longer eye splice than the standard eye. It has a few advantages, the most important one is that we do not directly splice to the shackle or attachment point so we can splice the rigging here in Annapolis.

Attach it to your boat wherever you may be without us having to ship a rigger to you (this gets expensive when you include the freight, beer, and pizza required).

Instead, watch the video below to see how to easily install:


We use the luggage tag for many items from our custom jacklines and 2:1 jib blocks to vang strops and tacklines. Give our customer service team a shout and we will help you get the best splice and most appropriate line for your application!
