I have a rigid boomkicker also. I slide the traveler all the way to one side with some slack in the main sheet. I use a dock line to pull the boom as far to the opposite side as possible. Then I grind the main sheet in to hold the boom. Works a treat.

As far as loads are concerned the load that the block will see may be up to twice the sheet load depending on the angles in and out of the block.
sail fast and eat well, dave
