Snatch Blocks and Swivels
Snatch Blocks and Swivels From Bishop
Snatch blocks are designed to aid the act of winching. Snatch blocks allow a length of rope or cable to be connected. The block is otherwise known as a sheave. It contains a grooved edge for the cable. A snatch block allows you to double up on the length of cable or rope which doubles the capacity of the block.
Snatch blocks can maximize the lifting capacity of a winching arrangement.
