The Harken Carbo Ratchets allow sailors to hand-hold loaded lines and
offer balance between holding power and controlled easing.
Nylon resin sideplates are densely packed with long-glass
fibers for a compact block with a high strength-to-weight
ratio. Machined aluminum sheaves are Hardkote anodized
for strength and corrosion resistance. Eight facets hold
line securely. Ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are
UV-stabilized with carbon black for maximum protection.
The 40 mm Harken Carbo Ratchets are ideal for jib sheets and spinnakers
where size and weight are critical. The 2608
have on/off switches; other 40 mm ratchets are always in
Main/jib/spinnaker sheets, Mainsheet fine-tune, Traveler controls, Genoa leads and Foreguys.
