I replaced all our Rutgerson clutches when the handles snapped off (clutches were 3 years old). The Rutgerssons were stiff, difficult to use and generally awful.

    I replaced them with Spinlock XTS clutches – they’re a bit over-spec’d, and were quite expensive, but EVERY time I use them it’s a pure joy. They’re well made, metal, stylish, ….generally excellent enginnering.

    Worth every penny, and fully recommended.
