The all-composite T2 is the first block with no metal shackles or rivets to corrode: the lightest Harken soft-attach block ever. High-strength sideplates have no metal fasteners. Soft attachments reduce weight and noise, allowing the block to articulate to align with the load. The T2 includes a length of covered Spectra line, and can be tied, spliced, or lashed to almost anything. The attachment line is routed through the block head and sheave, reducing load on the sideplates and acting as a safety backup for your system.
