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™ Loop requires no knots, splices, or tools to install, sliding easily through the block head and over the anchor post for a secure connection. An SK-75 Dyneema® loop is included. The T2™ includes a length of covered Spectra® line, and can be tied, spliced, or lashed to almost anything. Both models route the attachment line through the block head and sheave, reducing load on the sideplates and acting as a safety backup for your system.
