At Barbour Plastics we listen to customer feedback and take what we hear very seriously. Some of our customers have told us that installing a flexible insert into the rubrail base can be challenging at times. We have also heard that some rubrails installed on Z- bend gunwales do not retain tubular inserts at the bend point well. Such feedback has led us to develop an innovative new product to address such issues.

SlipFit is a two piece rubrail/insert system whose insert is designed to snap in to place with ease and stay put at those sharp bends.

There are several key features that make this possible:
• Opposing surfaces of both the rubrail base and the insert are coated with a proprietary polymer having a low coefficient of friction, such that with very little pressure, the insert slips right into place
• While the barb-shaped insert is passing through the opening of the rubrail base, its body can be compressed to further aid installation
• Once the insert is in place, its body decompresses and is firmly secured in place by the undersection of the rubrail base
