Any diameter of line can be accommodated, and any part of the line can be covered. Eyes can be covered fully or partially, according to the customer’s requirements. Heavy duty chrome-dressed hide is fitted tightly around the line and hand-stitched, leaving a proud seam, which has a double benefit: it ensures a snug fit around the line and it protects the stitches from being rubbed. As a matter of course an additional rubbing pad is fitted at the point where the line takes the most wear against the bollard. A choice of grey, brown or black leather is available.
