Please excuse the ignorance but is it possible to convert and use this on a L3K?

Looks like an expensive solution to a problem. Moreover, the fitting on a Laser mast has a vertically aligned tang, whereas the tang you have on an L3k is aligned at 90 degrees to that.

If removing the mast plug to solve your detached swivel block problem seems like too much hassle, why not just try screwing the Ronstan fitting into new holes offset slightly from the old ones. Use big self-tappers and sealant to prevent corrosion. It would work for years at least, I'd have thought. Just make sure you get the right size pilot holes by starting small and using bigger drills till you get a hole you can screw into.

Not a viable idea then -great news given the price.

I'm from "do the job once , properly" stock so once I fit the new block, it won't be going anywhere

Thanks for the advice - that expensive idea has been laid to rest
