Schaefer Snatch Blocks
Snatch blocks are one of the most versatile tools available for cruising or racing sailboats. The flexibility of these blocks makes them ideal for use as genoa leads, spinnaker controls or short sheet leads.
Schaefer's Snatch Blocks use an investment cast snap shackle attached with a Ball joint enabling 360° rotation as well as 15° tilting action. This flexibility allows for quick attachment. Urethane cheek covers protect your deck from damage. Each block has an integral bail allowing you to "hang" the block with a shockcord. Strength, Flexibility and Schaefer's reputation allow you to sail easier and safer.
Schaefer's extra wide sheave design easily accepts oversized lines. The 60mm and 76mm Snatch Blocks from Schaefer turn on their Nomex™/Teflon™ self lubricating bearing. This high load bearing design consists of Nomex™ , DuPont Teflon™ and epoxy-coated glass fibers. In use, Teflon™ migrates from the bearing providing friction reduction with each rotation.
