I'm going to put in some reef points on a brothers Columbia 22 main.
After I sew on the diamonds for the intermediate points and the two sets of cringle patches I thought I might use the jiffy grommets for the cringles instead of rings. The comment about webbing reinforcement in their description has me snowed though. Can I have a little more description on how to do this please?
Thanks,
Pete

The Jiffy grommet by itself is plenty strong for a cringle in a Columbia 22 mainsail. You will not need the additional webbing strap support. This said I think Matt Borden is working on a diagram or video that can be posted. We will see what he comes up with.

Thanks, Matt Grant

Hello Pete,
I have a diagram for the Jiffy Reefing Kit. Send me your email address to mattb@sailrite.com and I will send it to you.
Sincerely,
