Tech Tip

  • Snatch block.  If you’ve got a winch on your rig you should have at least one snatch block.  They can be used to winch from different angles or used to double the pull strength of the winch.  A quick search of the internet didn’t come up with anything on failed snatch blocks.  That said, buy the most expensive one that you can afford, like any equipment.  You might want to have 2, 1 for synthetic rope and the other for wire rope.  The wire rope will make rough marks in the pulley wheel that can damage a synthetic line.  Make sure you mark them.  Don’t forget the shackles!
