This Spring Stand-up solution allows the block to be held upright and pivot under load. It supports the block, improves the lead angle and prevents the block from hitting the deck. The bases are either stainless steel (small size) or anodized aluminum (larger sizes), and come in a kit with a stainless steel spring. Bases should be fitted with four M10 bolts with countersunk head.
The stand up is available in a variety of different sizes of springs, optimized for Rutgerson Blocks from 50-100mm in diameter, though can be retrofit to a wide variety of other blocks in similar sizes.
