BELAYING PINS, BOXWOOD 1/4 (6mm) 40/pack
Belaying Pins from Model Expo
It was originally thought that these "quick release" wooden fastening pins for securing the running ends of the running rigging appeared in the mid-17th century. However, belaying pins were found during the excavation of the Mary Rose, sunk in 1545, indicating that they were used at least 100 years earlier.
