LOOP BLOCK

The TyeTec Loop blocks can be divided into two main components: there's the rope pulley on the one hand and the loop on the other, which carries the rope pulley through the central hole, so that the loop takes up the forces. There is no force knitting on the other components like the cheek plate, connectors etc. which allowed us to reduce the blocks weight to an absolute minimum, whereas the breaking load is still vastly high.

You can choose between two loop lenghts . 

(long loop= standard; short loop = for limited space)

THIMBLE

Thimbles can be used anywhere, where the line is moved over a short distance

(otherwise better use a Loop block).

For example as fairlead for barber, for cascade pulleys, for lazy Jacks or lanyard pulleys.

Our Thimbles are characterized by their light weight,

smooth surface with low friction and their high strength.  

In the standard version, the moving part runs through the central opening. In the "high shoulder" version they can also be used in the outer keep.

 

SOFT PADEYE

Our soft padeyes are used with Dyneema diamond loops, which initate the pulling force on the hardware side lying below the deck.

Soft padeyes are super strong yet extremly light. For higher loads you can also use our continuous loops together with our 17-4 VHL dogbones. 

 

NMP

The TyeTec NMP blocks (NMP= "no moving parts") can be used as a thimble or a loop block, when it comes to application. The stationary part is spliced or mounted through  the central notch.  

The rope runs between the cheek plates of the NMP block.

by  pulling cable ties or yarn through the slots it prevents the block from turning.

 

NMP S

The TyeTec  NMP-S block (S=Sail) is used as a reefblock in the mainsail. Its advantages are in comparison to the common alternative  its low weight and enormous high workload.

A strap, which is pulled through the slot on its lower end, fixes the block on the sail and retains the block against torsion.

 

NMP D

The TyeTec NMP-D block (D=deck) can be screwed through a central drilling on the deck, on the rig or on a rail. Two smaller screws on the outer radius avoid the derailing of the rope. The block can also be used just as a deflector, by simply leaving the two smaller screws out.

FOOTRAIL ADAPTER

Rounded attachment point in the footrail providing a rounded 11 mm opening. The adapter is screwed in the slot of the footrail (using Loctite). A loopshackle or a dyneema loop can attach any fitting to the footrail. You might also use the fitting directly for a barberhaul or a similar task.

 

SWIVELING PADEYE

 TyeTec swiveling padeyes are universal all-rounders on deck. You can combine them with nearly every TyeTec product so that you can customise them to depending on your needs.

They are easy to assemble (on deck or on the rig) and can be closed,

if not in use, with a POM sealing cap.

 

EE THIMBLE

The TyeTec Eagle Eye can be lashed to the stanchion. 

It is used to lead the furling line from the jib system to stern.

The lashing doesn't damage the stanchion.

 

FAIRLEADS

Fairleads will keep your leashes in order and lead the sheet at the correct angle over the deck.

The TyeTec fairleads are milled out of aluminium and are

hard anodised so they are extremely stable and resistent.

The fairleads are availale in two versions: with a passage for hexagon socket screws (assembly over the top= FLT) or with a blind hole and a thread ( blind assembly from below the deck= FLB).

 

HAULS

TyeTec hauls are available in five different sizes.

Just like all the other TyeTec loop products, hauls stand out because of their low weight and their high breaking load.

Because of their smooth surface the friction resistance is very low.

 

In comparison with thimbles the load is spread over a bigger surface

avoiding abrasion of the rope.

 

LOOP CONNECTOR

TyeTec connectors replace conventional s/s shackles. They can be spliced to the halyard and and are easy to open without using any tools. Just as all the other TyeTec products the connectors are characterised by their low weight and high work- and breaking loads. 

HANDMADE PADEYES

The TyeTec padeys serve as  retainers for LoopBlocks, loops, shackles and many other TyeTec products. Particularly developed for high breaking loads, the padeyes stand out for extremly high workloads. That predestines  them to be used with loop blocks, thimbles, continuous loops and other products of this class.
