Of course, the block that had the separation problem was a stanchion mount turning block, which has a lot more force on it than does this design, since this design lets the line help hold the block in place.

In my other thread SD cautioned about over tightening, and I mentioned that it had not been an issue. But I can see how it could be if you torqued them.

Don't use the long arm of the allen key. Just snug them with the short arm.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
