HARKEN
57mm Carbo Air® Fiddle Ratchet Block

$80.34

Model # 11871092 | Mfg # 2673
In stock online.

Low-friction 57mm Carbo Air® Fiddle Ratchet Block is lightweight, strong, reliable—and affordable. 30 percent lighter and 60 percent stronger than equivalent blocks. Sideplates are UV-stabilized, high-strength resin. Ball bearings are made from engineered plastic in fitted ball races.

Carbo Ratchets allow sailors to hand-hold loaded lines and offer balance between holding power and controlled easing. The 57mm Carbo Air® blocks have an enormous working range that makes them ideal for main and jib sheets, spinnaker halyards and control lines. This range handles loads similar to Harken’s 3" standard blocks. Recipient of both the Dame Award and Sail Magazine's Freeman-Pittman Award for innovation.

    Comments about 57mm Carbo AirBlocks:

    I purchased this block to use in my single line reefing system at the base of the mast.I purchased the double block and I run two different reef lines through it. It is a lightweight block, the line move smoothly through it and it is generally a top quality product.

    Comments about 57mm Carbo AirBlocks:

    These blocks are by far the best value. My boat came with a different brand from the factory, but I'm steadily upgraded to all Harken Carbo because of the weight, performance, and look.
