Oxen blocks are the ultimate high tech, self-holding jib blocks that offer a real advantage over blocks with cleats! Get fast, simple mainsheet (and jibsheet) control: just pull-to-cleat, then pull-to release! Cleat or uncleat your jib or mainsheet every time without looking and from any position. Cleat from any angle or position on the boat, including the wings, even if your sheet passes over something en route. Oxen blocks are easy to install and foolproof to use. Expensive, but the best is rarely cheap!
