Selecting the best block and all of the equipment to go along with it usually is confusing.

With a wide variety of variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s important to know what to search for when deciding on a snatch block for the job. Factors to keep in mind when deciding on a snatch block for your rigging requirements:
Check the Functioning Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch block and the wire rope. If the WLL of the pulley isn’t appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it can create a dangerous condition if each one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch prevent 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 to be able to hold the wire correctly while under load.
Know your numbers. Because a snatchblock can slice the direct pull load in two, pick a rigging pulley which has a rating of twice the pull of the winch you’ll be applying with it.

For use with everything from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch prevent can be a real workhorse. Known as a rigging block because it plays a part in or “snatches” the mechanical force of pull, it provides a unique blend of power and flexibility. When used in combination with a winch, a prevent lets you pull or lift serious objects by “breaking” the draw span between your object and the winch. This cuts the direct pull load in two, which doubles the amount of fat your winch can pull.
