This Harken Snatch Blocks features low-friction ball bearing sheaves and a unique push-button latch for one-handed operation. The opening side allows sheets to be inserted without reeving.
Crew can quickly fasten these opening blocks wherever needed. ULC bearing technology ensures sheaves turn smoothly and maintain efficiency at high loads. Snap-fit Torlon ball bearings handle thrust loads, and the integral head-spacer prevents the hardcoat-anodized sideplates from binding the sheave. The articulating Loop carries the block's primary load.
Urethane sideplates prevent damage to decks, spars, and cabin houses. An integral bail allows blocks to hang from lifelines with shockcord. Snap shackles attach to padeyes and bails.
Harken snatch blocks are offered in high-load and low-load configurations and are used on offshore boats of all sizes. Use Harken snatch blocks for genoa leads, mast base reefing blocks, protected trip buttons, changing sheets, or spinnaker sheet deflector blocks. All have 64mm (2 1/2 in.) diameter sheaves and support line up to 16mm (5/8 in.) diameter.
