Old Style Plastic Retaining Spring
To fit Toppers manufactured before 1983 (pre hull number 9293). Although this part much cheaper than the transom modification kit (W19/36F) care should be taken to ensure the clip is properly in place and not damaged. A more secure way to ensure you do not loose your expensive rudder and tiller assembly (H21), is to add a transom modification (W19/36F) to the back of your Topper. This adds a sturdy stainless steel retaining clip to the back of the Topper. Care should still be taken to ensure the clip is fully enagaged in case of capize when you could still loose your ruuder and tiller.
