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
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.
