These heavy-duty padeyes are investment cast from high quality Stainless Steel for a high degree of accuracy and strength. The first step in this process involves making a wax part from a master or permanent die. The wax part is then used in temporary or a series of temporary molds. The actual parts are then cast from the mold without any wear to the permanent die to ensure accurate casting each time. Backing plates from SS are available for every investment cast padeye. Schaefer takes extra care with these padeyes and goes through metallurgy testing as well as x-rays to ensure a safe product on your boat.
Safe Working loads for Schaefer gear are based on proper mounting.
