cringle block...

I found a picture of a cringle block for reefing in one of sailingdogs old posts, but have had a heck of a time finding where one would purchase them.

Goiot has not responded to my emails.

Is there another manufacturer of these interesting cringle blocks?

This product is like a cringle ring with an axle across the ring with a block on the axle. So when you reef your mainsail, the line doesnt just scrape along the cringle, it rides on a small block.
