Product Features:

B070-0592, simple 70mm (2 3/4") thimble is machined from solid aliminium alloy. It is used for applications with high static loads that require only occassional, minor adjustment. The friction of the rope on the plain surface is high compared to a conventional block with bearings, but it is a light, simple solution for infrequent adjustment of a high-load line. Typical applications include vang purchase and inhaulers for jib sheets. Also developed in a 55mm version (B055-0666) and an 80mm version (B080-0615). Typical applications include vang purchase and inhaulers for jib sheets.
