Harken Hexaratchets grip loaded sheets, yet allow sailors to ease and trim quickly and with complete control. A switch on the side engages and disengages the ratchet mechanism.
Harken Hexaratchets feature Hardkote-anodized, Teflon-impregnated, eight-sided sheaves machined from solid aluminum for strength and corrosion resistance. Free-rolling Delrin ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are UV stabilized with carbon black for maximum protection. High-strength stainless steel straps reinforce blocks.
Reverse Ratchets. Use the HAR043 or HAR044 reverse ratchets with the HAR019 and HAR009 singles or HAR050 single with becket on spinnaker and jib sheets where ratchets rotate in opposite directions and on/off switches face up.
Hexa-Cat Bases. Combine the HAR193 and HAR170 Hexa-Cat bases with Big Bullet or 2.25 in (57 mm) blocks for purchase from 5:1 to 8:1.
