The most common uses for ratchet blocks are on smaller racing boats, where you’re working a spinnaker sheet or mainsheet by hand and wouldn’t think of belaying it to a cleat, or even, under the conditions, securing it in a cam cleat. You’re playing wind shifts and gusts with constant adjustment. With a ratchet block, your arm, wrist, and fingers will thank you for the assistance.
On any line that you’re trimming by hand rather than with a winch, the ratchet block reduces the amount of strength required.
