With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s vital that you know what to find when choosing a snatch block for the work. Factors to bear in mind when deciding on a snatch prevent for your rigging requirements:
Check the Functioning Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch block and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not compatible with the WLL of the rope, it can create a dangerous circumstances if either one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch block to the diameter of the cable rope. If the wire rope is too big for the sheave, the block can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio should be 12:1 as a way to hold the wire correctly while under load.
Know your numbers. Because a snatchblock can slice the direct pull load in half, pick a rigging pulley which has a rating of double the draw of the winch you’ll be using with it.

For use with from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch block can be a real workhorse. Called a rigging block because it contributes to or “snatches” the mechanical pressure of pull, it provides a unique combo of power and overall flexibility. When used in combination with a winch, a prevent enables you to pull or lift heavy objects by “breaking” the pull span between the object and the winch. This cuts the immediate pull load in two, which doubles how much excess weight your winch can pull.
