Control loaded lines with ease
Lightweight Carbo Ratchets are available in 40mm, 57mm, and 75mm sizes. The 40mm blocks are perfect for jibsheets and spinnakers on small dinghies where size and weight are critical. 57mm and 75mm sizes have many configurations to fit jibsheets, spinnakers, and mainsheet systems on boats ranging from dinghies to large sportboats. All the Carbo Ratchets feature a recessed On-Off switch that is easily operated from either side. The Cheek Block is also switch-controlled. The 40mm cam-arm versions work in ratchet mode only.
