Harken Carbo Blocks - Strong
and Compact. Harken low-friction Carbo AirBlocks are lightweight, strong,
reliable and affordable. These are features all sailors look for when
choosing sail controls and real breakthrough in block design. These Harken
small, compact blocks have very high working loads for safe, easy trimming
no matter how hard the wind blows.
Sideplates of high-strength
engineering resin are UV stabilized to provide excellent protection
against long-term exposure to salt water and sun.
Harken carbo blocks are perfect for the small-diameter hard lines favored
Lightweight, strong design. Harken Carbo Blocks are
30% lighter with a 60% higher working load than Classic blocks. Open
Air Block design eliminates unnecessary material and weight.
Long-lasting protection. Ball bearings, sheave and
sideplates UV-stabilized with carbon-black additive for maximum protection.
Three-way cam-lock. Patented switch locks shackle in
front or side positions, or lets block swivel to keep line from twisting.
Harken T18 Soft-Attach Blocks
The T18™ complements the T2™ line. At 7.2 g (.25 oz), it ties, splices, lashes anywhere— perfect for downhauls, outhauls, and other lightweight control systems on dinghies, skiffs, and beachcats. Composite sheave and sideplates, stainless steel ball bearings, integrated stainless inner race and rivet for optimal strength-to-weight. A length of 1.8 mm (1/16 in) diameter line is included.
Harken Carbo AirBlocks
Harken Carbo AirBlocks are 60% Stronger and 30% lighter than the Classic Blocks. Use the Harken 40 mm Carbo Block for jib and mainsheet systems on high-performance dinghies and for loaded control lines on small keelboats.
The nylon-resin sideplates are densely packed with long-glass fibers for a compact block with a high strength-to-weight ratio. Sheaves spin on high-load ball bearings with fitted races for low-friction operation. Ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are UV-stabilized with carbon black for maximum protection.
Harken Carbo Fiddle Blocks
The Harken 40 mm Carbo Fiddle Block line features high-load ball bearings with fitted races for low-friction operation. The Harken 40 mm Carbo Fiddle is an excellent choice for 3:1 and 4:1 tackles on dinghy vangs and mainsheets, as well as for controls such as cunninghams and internal boom outhauls on larger boats.
Harken Carbo Ratchet Blocks
Harken Carbo Ratchets allow sailors to hand-hold loaded lines and offer balance between holding power and controlled easing. The Harken 40 mm Carbo Ratchet Blocks are ideal for jib sheets ad spinnakers where size and weight are critical. The 2608, 2609, and 2614 have on/off switches; other 40 mm ratchetsare always in ratchet mode.
Nylon resin sideplates are densely packed with long-glass fibers for a compact block with a high strength-to-weight ratio. Machined aluminum sheaves are Hardkote anodized for strength and corrosion resistance. Eight facets hold line securely. Ball bearings, sheave, and sideplates are UV-stabilized with carbon black for maximum protection.
Harken Flip-Flop Blocks
Harken 57 mm and 75 mm Flip-Flop Blocks pivot around the line axis to keep line close to the deck. Hinged construction allows for various lead angles.
Lightweight, machined 6061-T6 aluminum cheeks pivot on fiber-reinforced plastic chocks. The 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 maximum protection.
The Ratchamatic 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.
