popular range of snatch blocks,
featuring rugged construction with an easy open/close
Four sizes, accepting lines up
The range features a choice of stainless
snap shackles, chromed bronze snap shackle or stainless
steel "D" shackle.
Small Snatch Blocks
Unique to Barton, these are probably the
smallest block of this type available. Extremely compact
and strong, with a multitude of uses on cruising or racing
yachts where a large unit is not required. Available with
a stainless steel or chromed bronze snap shackle.
Lightweight Snatch Blocks
Designed for application on dinghies,
dayboats, or light cruising yachts where a high load capacity
is not required. A pivoting side opening action allows
for easy entry of sheets and lines. Available with a stainless
steel snap shackle or "D" shackle.
Important note on Snatch Blocks:
when using snatch blocks on a toe rail,
a bungee line should be attached to the becket to prevent
the block "tumbling" and causing damage by snagging.
