The Carbo Ratchamatic is a load-sensing ratchet block that rolls freely in both directions under low loads, and automatically engages the ratchet as loads increase. When changing gears, the over-center shifting between ratchet and light air modes is crisp and seamless. Unloaded jib sheets run out like greased lightning during mark roundings.
And how about this terrific feature? With the simple twist of an allen wrench you can adjust ratchet engagement to a higher or lower load to suit your own muscle power or sailing style.

Replace your cleat with a "U" cleat that won't snag lines like a horn cleat. We all know horn cleats snag lines. The “U” cleat sheds them and makes for hassle free deck work. To install, it is through bolted onto the foredeck.
