I am new to the sport and the equipment I have used was not like the one on this boom I bought online. Does anyone have a pic of how to run the line through this in the pick. Chinook does not have an example of this one on their site.

My guess is its a loop and go system, where you have one knotted end at the top left hole, and the other end at the lower left hole (cleat). The loop will go through sail grommet, loop around post on bottom right, you pull on line at the cleat to tension.

The top 2 holes have a pulley in between in case you want to have some kind of adjustable outhaul and you use pulleys at the sail grommet.

Thank you. The top pulley was what was making me struggle to find a solution.

Is there a hole in the endpiece we can't see? If so, that's the starting point.

Where the pulley is on top on the other side there are two holes vs a slot you see in the pic. The only other hole is to the left of the cleat. I started on top using one of the hole on the other side of the pulley. It worked.

With any new outhaul or downhaul pulley design I encounter, I start lacing at the cleat, work back from there without crossing any lines until I encounter the hole, then reverse that path when lacing it in the future.

If that makes no sense, speak up. It's an important technique because it works with any configuration I've ever seen.

Pardon my 30 second photoshop job, but hopefully this gets the point across:

Dhmark is correct, it's a loop and go system.

Keep both ends of the outhaul line knotted and threaded through their respective holes at all times. Take the middle length of line, pull it through the sail grommet (it will be doubled up, so it will look like you're pulling two lines through), and then loop it around the tab in the lower right hand corner of the tailpiece. Pull the knotted end that goes through the hole next to the cleat to tighten and/or loosen the outhaul.

Outstanding. I've got several booms with a similar config, and I've never rigged them that way. Thanks!
