X2 AutoRatchet 45

AutoRatchet blocks feature an internal ratcheting mechanism which turns on and off automatically when a certain load is reached. This gives the user more holding power on hand-held lines but also allows the sheave to spin freely at low loads. Allowing a line to release quickly through a manoeuvre.

AutoRatchets are ideal for use in spinnaker sheet systems when you want the sheave to spin freely and let the sheet out quickly when gybing.

X2 – “X2” is our ingenious double pawl system, designed to increase the longevity of the ratchet mechanism. Unlike other ratchet blocks our X2 pawl system allows the load put on the internal mechanism to be shared between two pawls. This results in a longer-lasting and more reliable ratcheting mechanism that can withstand higher loads.

Extreme Hold – The X2 AutoRatchet 45 features a hardwearing nylon sheave with eight V grips to give extreme holding power on all lines. For maximum performance, we recommend pairing this ratchet block with 7mm Excel Marstron Plus.

Swivel Lock – The swivel can be locked in 90-degree orientations with the small black swivel lock at the top of the block. Alternatively, the swivel can be set to spin freely.

Trigger Load – The AutoRatchet mechanism is designed to engage at 10kg with a line wrap of 180 degrees around the sheave.

    I like the way it turns on quicker than most auto ratchets which means I can use it on my 2.4mR mainsheet.

    The first auto-ratchet I’ve ever owned that can survive Moth sailing! I also recommend this block to Optimist Sailors so they can let their sail out easily in tacks and downwind.
