Holt has expanded its performance hardware range to incorporate a new 60mm Pro-Ratchet block.
Using advanced carbon composite construction, the 60mm Pro-Ratchet is designed to offer tough holding power without compromise to weight or strength. This new block features a Pro-Lock swivel head; allowing it to be locked in two perpendicular positions or left to freely rotate. A low profile switch, that activates the ratchet mechanism, is integrated in to the blocks streamline design.
With the addition of a simple cheek adaptor moulding the new 60mm ratchet can also be converted into a port or starboard cheek block too. Ben Dunton, Director at Holt explained: “We are conscious of the number of parts builders and retailers need to hold in stock, so when we developed this product we built in the flexibility to allow one type of block and a inexpensive adaptor to take the place of three conventional blocks.”
Ideal for use on mainsheet systems or on spinnaker trimming applications, Holt’s carbon composite Pro-Ratchet block has a breaking load of 850kg and takes a maximum line size of 12mm.
These blocks will be available in early 2004 and will have a recommended retail price of £39.95.
