With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s important to know what to watch out for when choosing a snatch block for the job. Factors to bear in mind when choosing a snatch prevent for your rigging demands:
Check the Operating Load Limit (WLL) of both the snatch block and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it could create a dangerous condition if either one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch prevent to the size of the cable rope. If the wire rope is too large 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 effectively while under load.
Know your numbers. Because a snatchblock can cut the immediate pull load in half, choose a rigging pulley that has a rating of double the pull of the winch you’ll be using with it.
We carry many different styles of heavy duty snatch blocks / wire wire pulleys; check the technical specs for every product for break strength and load limitations. We also carry a wide selection of wire rope.

For use with everything from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch block can be a serious workhorse. Named a rigging block because it contributes to or “snatches” the mechanical pressure of pull, it provides a unique blend of power and flexibility. When used with a winch, a prevent lets you pull or lift large items by “breaking” the pull span between your object and the winch. This cuts the direct pull load in half, which doubles the amount of weight your winch can draw.
