A snatch block is a heavy-duty pulley housed in a metal frame. Its main use is to move heavy objects, acting as a pulley point that can change the direction of a winch line.
Wire hoists and winches can lift or draw heavier loads thanks to the usage of snatch blocks. Be aware of the extra force this method puts on fixing or anchor points since it is common for it to result in a 100% increase in pulling or lifting capacity.
Snatch blocks let you pull in a three-point motion while offsetting the anchor point to shift the direction of a winch's rope. Snatch blocks are frequently used in recovery scenarios since they are strong and long-lasting and are perfect for moving loads over short distances.
A snatch block can significantly boost a winch's power when used in conjunction with a winch, enabling a smoother, simpler winching procedure.
