Tips: What is a snatch block?
A snatch block is a versatile pulley system used in various applications, particularly in rigging and towing operations. It consists of a grooved wheel enclosed within a housing or frame. The wheel has a groove that allows a rope or cable to pass through it. The primary purpose of a snatch block is to change the direction of a pulling force or to create a mechanical advantage by increasing the effective pulling power.
When a rope or cable is threaded through the snatch block's groove, it forms a loop, which can be connected to an anchor point or another object. By rerouting the line, a snatch block enables the user to change the angle of pull, redirecting the force along a different path. This can be advantageous for maneuvering heavy loads, overcoming obstacles, or achieving better leverage. Snatch blocks are commonly employed in activities such as off-road recovery, maritime operations, construction, and forestry.
