Allen 50mm Quint Ratchet Block with
Becket and Cleat
The Allen A2159 has been designed to
be suitable for retro fitting on a wider range of boats. When combined
with the A2059 Quint Block, you can gain a purchase system of 10:1. The
Quint Mainsheet System also allows for the addition of beckets, this
means when combined with an A2040, the purchase can be taken to 11:1.
Please note: The angle of the cleat is
adjustable and can be set to multiple angles.
These blocks have a ratchet mechanism that
can easily be switched on or off even under load and the swivel head can
be locked in a fixed position. Allen sheave technology gives you grip
under load and easy release when the load is decreased. The 50mm
switchable ratchet block is ideal for sailors wanting to reduce the size
without losing the inherent strength of this design.
