Product Description

This fiddle block kit is an ideal accessory to a Port-A-Wrap that allows the user to pretension lines, create lift or simply remove slack from systems with lots of rope in between. Fiddle blocks provide a very compact, inline system for incredible 5:1 mechanical advantage resulting in 1,000 lbs of lifting or pulling power from only 200 lbs of input into the system. Steel carabiners and prusik are for attaching blocks to line and anchorage. Fiddle blocks are generally stored fully rigged so that you simply attach the ends to host line (via the included prusik) and anchor (a tree, vehicle, or even host rope again, using the included carabiner on your sling or other means). The fiddle blockís limitations are that itís limited to 10ft of working spread with the included 50ft rope; a friction device (like Port-A-Wrap) is required to hold drawn rigging line for multiple advances if needed.


* The drawing demonstrates how pulling with 200 lbs of force results in a 5:1 mechanical advantage (1,000 lbs) of lift. Between pulls, a built-in cleat holds position on the line, which can be released with a snap of the wrist.
