Bocking Block

 The Bocking Block (BB)

 

The BB is a screw-jack of adjustable length providing a compression or expansion force intended for use in scenic construction as a clamp or spreader or a prop.

 

Its key improvement over the usual screw-jack is the easier method of adjustment and a sleeve that slips over the timber.

 

The anticipated use is that the BB is integrated with cheap rigid materials - such as 2x2 timber - which are cut to a rough length with the BB achieving the fine adjustment of length and providing the clamping force.

 

The BB can be put into place quickly and so is safer when working at height or in confined areas.

 

The BB can replace the use of unpredictable wedges for levelling or jamming something in place. There is no chance of damage from missed hammer blows or swinging that can unbalance the worker.

 

The compact size and design of the BB enables 99% of the length of the run to be used for secondary fixing, unlike the common 2'x4' 'spreader bar' which typically has 12-18" of hardware which cannot be affixed to.

 

The BB can replace the use of bar-clamps and tension or compression poles (like Manfrotto Polecats or shower poles) while being cheap and versatile. There is no need to carry a stock of different poles or clamps to fit cover a variety of unknown locations when users can carry a BB and some material which can be cut to fit and so have limitless versatility.

 

Enabling a choice of rigid materials allows the user to choose the most suitable materials to which fittings or hardware can be affixed by clamping to or screwing or stapling.
