Snatch Blocks / Wire Rope Blocks
Snatch blocks are used in construction, crane rental, mining, towing and anywhere else a mechanical advantage is required in lifting or pulling in either a single sheave or double sheave unit. Snatch blocks can also be used to change the direction of wire rope depending on what is required for the application. Snatch blocks come in three basic types: with a hook & latch type fitting, shackle type fitting or simply a tail board (no hook or shackle).
We also supply McKissick brand sheaves, construction blocks and crane blocks, so if you are in need of sheaves and wire rope blocks, please give us a call.
