EquipLite Snatch Blocks

EquipLite Snatch Blocks

Equiplite Patented blocks are great for use as a snatch block or as a halyard block. They use Dynex DSK 75 Ultra loops to take the loads directly through the center of the sheave. This allows the blocks to be extremely light, compact, quick and easy to operate, compared to competitive blocks, of the same load. Weighing 75% less than competitors designs with the same breaking load. They employ carbon composite side plates, aluminium sheaves for high Load types and high load low friction polymer bearings.

They are used on top competitive boats for all uses, including Barber Haulers, tweakers, tack line block, mast base blocks, main sheet blocks, jib clew blocks 2:1, trim sheets blocks and being very flexible also make great 2:1 main halyards and 2:1 genoa halyards..

Advantages include: * extremely high loads and compact * Approx. 80% weight saving, compared to competitive blocks * Safer, light weight reduces risk of injury when flogging * Easy and quick to attach and detach, even with cold & wet hands * Reduced damage to masts, spinnaker tracks, topsides etc. * Will not jam even if overloaded, will operate close to break load.

Using wide Acetyl or aluminium sheaves to pass two sheets, making it possible to peel under loads. Great for those looking to keep things compact and reduce windage. Weighing at least 75% less than other blocks with the same break load. The bearing has an advanced high load low friction polymer bearing technology for an unparalled loaded friction efficiency. Unmatched in impact and wear resistance.
