We send the ring to Harken and they make the blocks onto the ring. We could send you the ring with blocks but there is a simpler way. If we sent it to you a sailmaker would have to re-attach the ring. Just take 2 of the blocks (H082) and with a 3/16 drill bit drill out the end of the pin and push the pin out. Carefully take off the stainless part while holding the plastic pieces together so the balls don't fall out. Put the blocks onto the ring and put in a #10 bolt where the pin was. We could send you the blocks, drilled and with the bolts in them as well but it's not too hard to do.
