Selecting the best block and all the equipment to go along with it is usually confusing. When you have any issues about using snatch blocks, choosing wire rope blocks, functioning load restrictions, etc., contact one of our sales specialists . They can help you find precisely what you will need to complete the job safely.
With a wide variety of variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s vital that you know what to look for when choosing a snatch block for the work. Factors to bear in mind when deciding on a snatch block for your rigging needs:
Check the Operating Load Limit (WLL) of both the snatch prevent and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley isn’t appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it could create a dangerous scenario if each one should fail.
Coordinate how big is the sheave in the snatch prevent to the diameter of the wire rope. If the cable rope is too big for the sheave, the block can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio should be 12:1 to be able to hold the wire correctly while under load.
Know your numbers. Just because a snatchblock can cut the direct pull load in half, select a rigging pulley which has a rating of twice the pull of the winch you’ll be applying with it.
We carry a variety of styles of heavy duty snatch blocks / wire wire pulleys; check the technical specs for every product for break strength and load limits. We also carry a wide selection of wire rope.
Along with heavy duty snatch blocks, we as well offer scaled-down rigging snatch blocks and pulleys in various designs and sizes, which includes stainless snatch blocks, sq . blocks, single and double pulleys, swivel block , and more.
For use with from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch prevent can be a actual workhorse. Referred to as a rigging block since it contributes to or “snatches” the mechanical drive of pull, it offers a unique combo of power and overall flexibility. When used with a winch, a block lets you pull or lift heavy items by “breaking” the pull span between your object and the winch. This cuts the direct pull load in two, which doubles how much pounds your winch can draw.
