Snatch blocks are a convenient solution for temporary leads and line deflection on boats up to 43 feet. Applications include removable spinnaker sheet deflector, temporary sheeting oint, temporary reefing oint, trmporary outboad sheet lead for headsail trimming, or emergancy replacement block. Hardcote® anodized alloy sheaves run on needle roller bearings for minimum friction under high load. Sheaves are removable for easy maintenance and can accept wire. Trunnion snap shackles are fitted for maximum articulation to prevent binding when attached to toe-rails and other rigid objects. A shock cord attachment point is provided for hanging the block from the lifelines.
