With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s vital that you know what to search for when deciding on a snatch block for the work. Factors to keep in mind when choosing a snatch prevent for your rigging demands:
Check the Working Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch block and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not appropriate for the WLL of the rope, it could create a dangerous condition if either one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch prevent to the size of the wire rope. If the cable 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. Just because a snatchblock can cut the direct pull load in half, pick a rigging pulley that has a rating of twice the pull of the winch you’ll be employing with it.

For use with from sailboats to ATVs, a snatch block can be a true workhorse. Named a rigging block because it plays a part in or “snatches” the mechanical push of pull, it provides a unique combination of power and overall flexibility. When used with a winch, a block lets you pull or lift serious items by “breaking” the draw span between the object and the winch. This cuts the immediate pull load in two, which doubles how much fat your winch can pull.
