When you race HARD, and you rip through as
many hoists and douses as we do sailing W-L legs all the time, you
should expect to start wearing through the sideplates of your halyard
exit block right? Wrong! Thanks to Harken Protexit™ blocks,
wear from side angle loading is not inevitable.
Protexit’s all-aluminum, wear-resistant
housing carefully ushers line in and out no matter the angle. There’s
more: Protexit blocks offer higher working loads than any small boat
exit blocks we’ve ever made.
Protexit aluminum sheaves rotate on sleeve
bearings with Delrin® sideload balls so they don’t deform in extreme
conditions, while reducing wear on the halyard, too.
