Halyards has the shank of the talurit facing back towards the shackle end so that the ball is presented to the lock first. This prevents the shank jamming in the lock slot. As the ball passes the lock hooks, the shank slides up the slot and sets the ball square in the lock.

This prevents uneven loading on the wire strop and eventual failure of the wire. It is advisable to put a little smear of vaseline (petroleum jelly) on the ball before pulling up a sail, to lubricate the lock.

If talurit ball is too tight on other manufacturer's halyard locks, simply file ball to size around the widest external circumference (usually down to 6mm dia).
