Carbo Ratchamatic®

The ratchet on the Carbo Ratchamatic® instantly engages when a predetermined load is reached. When unloaded, the ratchet pawl seamlessly disengages, allowing jib and spinnaker sheets to run out instantly during mark roundings and jibes. The preset load threshold can be fine-tuned with an Allen wrench.
