Harken 40mm Carbo Ratchet Blocks
The 40 mm ratchets are
ideal for jib sheets and spinnakers where size and weight are
critical. The 2608, 2609, and 2614 have on/off switches; other 40 mm
ratchets are always in ratchet mode.
Carbo Ratchets allow
sailors to hand-hold loaded lines and offer balance between holding
power and controlled easing. Nylon resin sideplates are
densely packed with long-glass fibers for a compact block with a
high strength-to-weight ratio. Machined aluminum sheaves are
Hardkote anodized for strength and corrosion resistance. Eight
facets hold line securely. Ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are
UV-stabilized with carbon black for maximum protection.
