Small Boat Flip-Flop blocks pivot around the
line axis to keep the 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
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 accommodation of
changing lead angles.
