Default Replacing Outrigger Lines

Anyone know where I can get a chinese finger trap device that will allow me to connect the new rigger line to the old line, pull the old lines through with the new line attached, cleanly through the riggers? I've tried electrical tape but I know there is a better way!

Using 400lb line.

You need some 200 pound Dacron if your crimps won't go through.

Thanks guys. Tackling this weekend. Don't think crimps will work with the pulleys on the riggers. I've got all these items on the boat with the exception of dacron, which is probably the most similar to what i was initially looking for.

Now, anyone have a cockpit dredge off the outrigger diagram they care to share? I'm thinking of a two pulley system to minimize the strain on equipment.

Crimp will work with 400lb, just redid ours today with pulleys on each eye of the rigger

You do have to crush the crimp AND give it a few tugs to get it lined up and through but it works.

.... No need to spend a doller to save a nickel.
