These bailer spring plates are manufactured using the highest quality spring stainless steel, designed to both retract using spring tension, and at the same time providing a surface for the activator to push against to close the chute.
"I was getting fed up of replacing the rubber bands on my self bailer every 4 months as they would perish".
Recent changes to the Laser® rules allowed the replacement of the bands by springs. Traditional coiled springs have been known to get tired of closing the bailer after being left open for long periods which then need to be replaced for best effect. This design does not suffer from this problem.
This is a once only solution and works like a dream.
How to fit the Rooster Laser spring:
Steve Cockerill, June 2011
NOTE: This spring plate will not work properly with "old" style laser bailers made prior to the current "Nautos" stamped ones. It is a quirk of the tiny changes made to the mouldings when the tooling was re-engineered some 15 years ago, but the two designs look the same, but there are subtle changes. Do not try to fit this spring plate to an "old style" laser bailer, the result will be poor. It is designed for and fits the "nautos" moulding perfectly.(Please see related item made by Holt Laser 1 bailer). See the below image showing the 'Nautos' marking on a typical Laser bailer.

Its great. I think this is easier than the springs to install, as you dont have to worry about left and right springs. The bailer has also stayed open. Previously, it would shut on its own. The last thing i want to worry about when surfing downwind in 20kt is to get my hand on the bailer to open it!
Overall, great upgrade.

Pricey but essential addition to improve the self bailer. Fitting OK if you put the bailer in hot water first - there is also a good YouTube video. Seems pretty durable.
