Sometimes called the friction pad - this helps hold the centeboard in place and controls the aft edge.
(The original Laser MK1 flat back rubber friction pad which is held in place with a toe strap gripper plate - see related items)
1. Remove the 2 no. existing screws with a cross-headed screwdriver – this will remove the small plastic front plate and the old rubber brake. There is no need to remove the Mainsheet block or its screws to fit a new brake.
2. The area underneath the old brake should be cleaned (a small amount of acetone on a rag) to remove any old sealant that still may be attached to the hull.
3. Apply a small amount of new sealant to the existing deck holes.
4. Offer up the new rubber brake and put the screws through the existing gripper plate that holds the brake in place.
5. Offer up the Laser dagger board into the slot and before tightening down the 2 no. screws completely, move the rubber brake fore and aft, so the large ‘V part’ is just rubbing on the back of the Laser dagger board. It can sometimes be easier to turn the Laser on its side in the dinghy park to check you have the new rubber in the correct place, so there is not too much friction on the board when fully down.
If you need replacement a gripper plastic plate, sealant, or screws, please see the related product items for more details.
