All our booms are built to stay strong. For added safety our booms have a dual stainless steel cable system that runs all the way from the boom to the attachment point at the bow of the boat. There are no levers or moving parts on our boom clamps because moving parts can loosen, wear out and break. Our boom clamps are extremely strong with heavy duty hardware to ensure they remain firmly mounted. Also our boom clamps come with a heavy duty safe airline quick release pin which makes it easy to attach and remove the booms. By purchasing a Barefoot International boom you are guaranteeing that you have the highest quality, strongest and without a doubt the safest boom.
