With so many different variations, sizes and weight limitations, it’s vital that you know what to look for when deciding on a snatch block for the job. Factors to bear in mind when deciding on a snatch prevent for your rigging demands:
Check the Functioning Load Limit (WLL) of both the snatch prevent and the cable rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not compatible with the WLL of the rope, it can create a dangerous condition if each one should fail.
Coordinate how big is the sheave in the snatch block to the diameter of the cable rope. If the cable rope is too large for the sheave, the block can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio ought to be 12:1 so that you can hold the wire properly while under load.

When used with a winch, a prevent enables you to pull or lift serious things by “breaking” the pull span between the object and the winch. This cuts the immediate pull load in two, which doubles the number of fat your winch can draw.
