Series 75 Halyard Single Orbit Block


Model # 7298797 | Mfg # RF79108
Ships directly from the vendor

This exceptionally strong block features the performance Orbit sheave with captive Acetal ball bearings for side thrust loads, eliminating the need for side retainer plates. This reduces weight and offers a wider bearing surface that can accommodate longer Torlon(r) needles, achieving a super high strength-to-weight ratio. Halyard blocks are used in applications with a fixed line entry-angle to keep lines close to the deck as they lead aft to organizers and winches. The halyard block has a removable pin for attachment to deck padeyes or mast collar.
