It depends on how and where you intend to add it. There are a maximum number of turning points allowed. I am sure AlanD will give us his wise words if he picks this thread up.

The Harken #416 would normaly be used in a mounted manner. Mounting it like that on a laser would be considered illegal. If you want to use it instead of a unmountable "normal block" or "normal block with becket" as they would normally be used, that's your call, but I suspect it would work less efficiently.
