When using a winch, sometimes more pulling power is needed to complete the mission at hand. This can be either because the winch is not strong enough or fast enough; in either case, this is where you need the help of a heavy duty snatch block. Heavy duty snatch blocks are designed to improve the capacities of winches and are used for either re-directing loads or as a hoisting system.
Winching is typically needed to recover vehicles from ditches, moving items from your path (such as a tree) and hoisting heavy items. Snatch blocks ensure the rope used to pull the item stays secure and can also be used to change the direction of the load. They also increase the amount of cable that can be run off the drum, meaning that a heavier load can be pulled easily. They are simple to use and un-clip open, allowing users to place the winch cable directly into the snatch block.
