Assuming you have any concerns about applying snatch blocks, choosing cable rope blocks, doing work load restrictions, etc., contact one of our sales specialists . They are able to help you find just what you need to complete the job safely.
With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s vital that you know what to consider when deciding on a snatch block for the job. Factors to keep in mind when choosing a snatch block for your rigging requires:
Check the Working Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch prevent and the wire rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it can create a dangerous scenario if each one should fail.
Coordinate how big is the sheave in the snatch block to the diameter of the wire rope. If the cable rope is too large for the sheave, the prevent can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio should be 12:1 to be able to hold the wire effectively while under load.
Know your numbers. Because a snatchblock can cut the direct pull load in two, select a rigging pulley that has a rating of double the draw of the winch you’ll be applying with it.
We carry a range of styles of heavy duty snatch blocks / wire wire pulleys; check the features for each and every product for break strength and load limits. We likewise carry a wide collection of wire rope.
Along with durable snatch blocks, we also offer smaller sized rigging snatch blocks and pulleys in various designs and sizes, which include stainless steel snatch blocks, square blocks, single and twice pulleys, swivel block , and more.
For use with everything from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch prevent can be a genuine workhorse. Named a rigging block since it contributes to or “snatches” the mechanical force of pull, it provides a unique mixture of power and flexibility. When used in combination with a winch, a block lets you pull or lift heavy objects by “breaking” the draw span between your object and the winch. This cuts the direct pull load in two, which doubles how much excess weight your winch can draw.
