This lightweight, low-friction Harken Wire Block is designed to carry wire halyards and high-strength control lines where the line is not adjusted frequently. Perfect for backstay systems along or coupled with corresponding split backstay plates on boats of all sizes.
High-load, composite bearings carry axial loads. The sheave is Hardkote-anodized and Teflon impregnated for strength and corrosion resistance.
This 38 mm (1.50 in.) Wire Block has sideload balls between the sheave and the sideplate to minimize friction from unfair leads.
