The 16mm Block is Harken's smallest block. It is perfect for small synthetic control lines found on high-tech dinghies.
The patented bearing system uses stainless steel balls in a captive grooved race and has a 113kg (250lb) maximum working load - the highest on the market compared to similarly sized blocks.
Harken 16mm blocks can be used for dinghy control lines, big boat leech lines, downhauls, traveler controls, spinnaker pole trip lines, outhauls, cunninghams, and halyards on prams.
The 404 uses an o-ring to keep the line in the sheave during intermittent loading.
