A block is a single or multiple pulley. One or more sheaves are enclosed in an assembly between cheeks. In use a block is fixed to the end of a line, to a spar, or to a surface. Rope or line is threaded through the sheaves. Some blocks have a ratchet, which means that they turn freely when you pull a line in one direction but do not turn in the other direction. This makes a line easier to hold especially on a windy day.
