What are Snatch Blocks?
The Snatch Block is a pulley with a side plate that swings open. A snatch block can be opened to receive a bit of rope along any length of it. The block is meant to change direction of the recovery rope to get the straight angle you need.
How does it work?
A pulley system is used in conjunction with a winch rope by looping the rope through the pulley before hooking to the vehicle, rock or tree in recovery. By doing this, it increases your pulling capacity and strengthens your winch.
When recovering, you would usually have an anchor point located directly in front of your vehicle but often times you won’t always be so lucky. With a Snatch Block you can set up an angled, single line pull by running the rope through the block to offset the anchor point. You would then identify a second anchor point that’s offset in the opposite direction as the first anchor point. Use a soft shackle to attach the snatch block with the second anchor point.
Reasons for using Snatch Blocks:
- Increase pulling power of the winch
- Change direction of the winch cable when pulling at an angle.
- Haul a lot of weight in a short distance
- Easy to use swing block
When working with angled pulls, you want to stay safe and improve your recovery. This Snatch Block can be used in a way that protects your rope as well as the spectators involved with the recovery. Increase the versatility of your winch with the Snatch Block from TRE.
