Small Boat Flip-Flop blocks pivot around the line axis to
keep line close to the deck. Hinged construction allows for
various lead angles.
Lightweight, machined 6061-T6 aluminum cheeks pivot on
fiber-reinforced plastic chocks. Sheave runs exclusively on a
ball bearing system for fast trim and release under any load.
Ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are UV stabilized with
carbon black for maximum protection.
Ratchamatic® versions roll freely in both directions under
low loads and automatically engage a ratchet mechanism as
loads increase, giving sailors a holding power of up to 15:1.
The ratchet engagement can be adjusted to a higher or
lower load depending on the sailor's strength, sailing style
and system usage.
Reversible cam arms adjust and lock in a wide range of
positions for crew accessibility and to accommodation of
changing lead angles.
