Vertical Lead Block

Our final new product to share is The Redline Block Series. This series is used to change the direction of a rope, allowing a winch to be mounted in a more convenient location. Thern’s new Vertical Lead Block uses cable keepers on the top and sides of the sheave to guide the path of the rope. This will avoid obstacles, reduce hazards, and improve rope wear over time. The blocks have a durable powder coat finish that provides corrosion resistance for any harsh environment.
