More information on Ratchet Blocks:
Hand hold loaded lines with ease with ratchet blocks. These blocks allow you to easily trim while offering superior holding power to handle to load. Ratchet blocks are offered in manual or automatic. The manual version requires a switch to turn the ratchet on and off. The automatic blocks let the line run freely until it becomes loaded when the ratchet automatically engages. Whether you're trimming spinnaker on a small keelboat or controlling the mainsheet of an Optimist, a ratchet can be a real hand saver!
We carry ratchet blocks from all the top marine hardware manufacturers including Harken, Lewmar, Ronstan, Allen and Selden.
