Allen 60mm Auto Ratchet Mainsheet Block

X2 AutoRatchet With Wave Sheave

The NEW wave ratchet offers 20 to 40%* more grip without adding any additional wear to the rope.

The most effective way to increase friction is to add sharp edges to the ratchet sheave, but this quickly deteriorates and wears away the rope. So, after working alongside leading rope manufacturers the Allen design team came up with a simple solution which improves grip without chewing away at your expensive rope.

The Wave Ratchet sheave has an offset V style grip, made from a hard-wearing recycled plastic nylon, which does not have sharp edges that will eat into the rope. Instead, by adjusting the V formation in the sheave to be slightly offset, the ratchet now grips the rope at additional points around the sheave, resulting in more grip. However, the new Wave Ratchet not only improves grip but as a result of the design it also allows for a less ‘jumpy’ feel when easing the sheets.

60mm X2 AutoRatchet

The “X2” pawl system incorporates two pawls into the mechanism for the ratchet block allows the load to be evenly shared between both pawls, this allows the block to withstand higher working loads while also increasing both the reliability and longevity of the block when compared to the older AutoRatchet designs.

*Depends on the type of rope in use with the sheave.
