I have the original jib on my 1984 Hobie 16. The battens were hinged, one hinge broke, and I couldn't find replacement hinges. So, I bought a set of Super Battens to replace them. The original battens were tied, but these just have blunt capped ends. How do I install Super Battens properly? Thanks.

You can drill a small hole in the cap. I'm surprised that there isn't one already.
