A Flipping Good Upgrade

Upgraded and Flip-Flopping better than ever. The new range of stainless-steel flip flop blocks from Allen has been launched at METS this week.

The new range offers a redesigned body in two different sizes and incorporates a 20 & 30mm dynamic sheave. The new flip flop range also features a lighter yet sturdier body that can pivot through 180 degrees and is held in place by a removable clevis pin for easy access to the backing plate.

Allen Design Manager, Darren Elwell, commented “This new upgrade was well needed. Our existing range of flip flop blocks was well outdated and used far too much unnecessary material. By updating the design, we have not only cut down the material used to produce the product, but we have also made it stronger and lighter.”

The 30mm body is available with or without cleats and makes for a great choice for pole launching or halyard systems.
