With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s important to 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 demands:
Check the Functioning Load Limit (WLL) of both the snatch block and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not compatible with the WLL of the rope, it could create a dangerous circumstance if either one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch block to the diameter of the wire rope. If the cable rope is too big for the sheave, the prevent can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio ought to be 12:1 as a way to hold the wire effectively while under load.
Know your numbers. 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 using with it.

For use with from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch prevent can be a legitimate workhorse. Named a rigging block because it plays a part in or “snatches” the mechanical force of pull, it includes a unique combo of power and overall flexibility. When used with a winch, a block lets you pull or lift weighty objects by “breaking” the pull span between the object and the winch. This cuts the immediate pull load in half, which doubles how much fat your winch can draw.
