I broke a sail slide while putting in a reef. Grrrrr. Rookie mistake.

The photos aren't great, but the slide is sewn into the webbing that is then sewn to the sail. Is there a replacement product that can be installed without having to sew it in?

Thanks!

Well you can hand sew a slug back on or like I have you can use stainless screw shackles. They go into the grommets you have on your sail. No sewing and if you break a slug its 10min to put another on. Sailrite has them. I think the slugs are 3/8 but measure first. Not sure about the shackle size. Here is a photo of my slugs.

Sail Rite sells a plastic shackle which works well in conjunction with the nylon sail slug.

You guys put me on the right path... I ended up going with this setup from Catalina Direct. I will report back on how well it works.
