- Size Chart
Drop nose pins have been around for a while, but never ones that are designed specifically for the diameters and sizes of the Laser® Harken Kicker unit.
Shaft dia.= 6.2 mm
Shaft length (working length) = 11.5mm
This bottom Pin is the perfect length to not interfere with your Cunningham and Outhaul controls and make the process of removing your kicker unit much easier.
Important Note. Please ensure that the retaining clip is properly engaged before every sail to prevent possible loss or failure. Please also note that excessive gooseneck plug wear or a loose gooseneck pin can also lead to drop nose failures.
Please ensure that the drop nose pin 'T' end of the drop nose pin is on the opposite side to the cunningham downhaul, so there is no possibility of the rope catching on the drop nose 'T' pin end.

I’ve been using the Bottom Drop Nose Laser Vang Pin for a year. It recently fell apart due to a defect. I contacted Rooster, and they immediately stepped into the breach to send me a new one! Since the part worked flawlessly until the spring pin fell out, I’m giving it a 5 star rating because it works well and the company took care of the problem.

The alternative is the "Laser Vang Tang Quick Pin (1/4" - Harken Vang)" sold by other vendors. I lost the first one and the second one stopped working at some point, the ball was stuck.
This swivel nose is a much better design, can't lose it and it's well locked.

Very convenient but split pin dropped out after a few weeks. It appears I am not alone in this..

Used the pin 3 times before it broke or fell out, unclear which. On a beat when there was a bang and the kicker was dangling from the boom. Used a pin with a split ring for many years and never had a problem. Very convenient but not reliable!
