The highline shear pin adapter provides a 40,000 pound weak link between the star probe highline end fitting and the pelican hook.
The shear pin for the highline shear pin adapter is a replacement for the adapter. It is designed to fail when loads exceed 40,000 pounds and prevents damage to the supporting ship's structure and surrounding equipment.
The highline end fitting adapter is used with the 7/8" or 1" wire rope poured socket. It is used to reconfigure the end fitting of a highline wire rope for stream or conventional transfer methods.
The star probe fitting consists of a probe head, tube with end cap, and a fin mounted guide ring. It slides over the highline end fitting and provides a securing point for the star latch assembly when using the star rig.
The highline end fitting poured socket is a permanently installed threaded fitting attached to the outboard end of the wire rope highline. It is used in conjunction with the highline end fitting adapter.
