    Default Heavy Duty Snatch Blocks

    Hello once again from Queenstown

    I would like to know if any of you know or have heard of a snatch block that does not have those two C-clips holding the centre pin in place, I am looking for a heavy duty snatch block that has a centre bearing which must be greasable and must not fall apart when winching at extreme angles.

    I was using a snatch block which has the nylon yellow plastic pulley and a metal shaft and those two C-clips, well it could not take the strain and the C-clips went flying and the thing just fell apart, I was using this snatch block to help shift a 12 metre shipping container in my back yard at home.

    So far there are two of these 12 metre containers and another one is arriving tomorrow and I will need this heavy duty snatch block to shift them into place.

    If possible I know that Warn may sell them, but which business can I contact.
    Thankyou

    I've got the Warn ones and they are not that much better, pin also held in place with circlips, but I've had them for 10 years already and no problems so far.
    There is a place in Cape Town that used to be the importers of Warn a few years ago, ACSA, not sure if they still are.

    BH, contact any rigging or company running cranes. They should be able to give you details of a supplier.

    Good afternoon
    We supply an underground/mining rigging snatch block. Please supply the following (1)diametre of the cable and or if it is steel or textile (2)capacity/work load limit required. The underground rigging snatch block has a hook that turns 90 degrees to the side and side plate that folds down to allow access for the rope. BUT, please remember that NO snatch block is designed for extreme side loading,you must be doing something wrong.

    Thankyou for this info, I will give you a call tomorrow, the cable is steel, will measure it and let you know, it is one of those std cables that come with The KEW 8000 electric winch, but on the TJ Jeep Wrangler we also have a steel cable but that winch is a Mile Marker 12000lbs hydraulic.

    We have not had any problems when winching the Jeep or Hilux, but only when we were moving some 12 metre shipping containers, yes we did lift them up first with a High Lift Jack and placed some old water steel pipe underneath to sort of roll them on, but when we used that other snatch block that has that yellow fibre pulley the whole thing just came apart, the C-clip went flying as I said.

    These snatch blocks that you have do you have any photo's and sizes and prices please.

    Thankyou

    Friend,

    These snatch block are the only ones we use on the oil rigs. Unfortunately, they are from the states, but at least you can see what to look out for.

    Hi Barto

    ACSA-MAG used to import Warn. Earlier this year they were bought out by Control Instruments and as such Warn is now distributed by Control Instruments.

    I like to put a HT bolt in the place of the pin with circlips. With a nyloc nut you can adjust the tension.

    Thumbs up Got my stuff from LLS back see photo's

    Okay with a few emails to LLS and a few weeks of waiting, I have finally got my old broken kinetic strap back, it is much shorter, however it is suitable enough to use as a tow strap or even still for short pulls, but the photo's will show you the two heavy duty snatch blocks, that I bought, they are just what I was looking for, you twist open the locking pin and you can then insert the winch cable.

    Then there is a photo of the new kinetic strap, bought a few of these as well for a few friends.

    This company really went out of their way to sort out my old strap (for free)and their workmanship is excellent, I will recommend them to anybody who wishes to buy these recovery straps and equipment. Quality and prices are excellent as well.

    I resize my pics to between 800x600 and 1024x768 depending on how they were cropped. I then save them as JPG with between 30% and 50% compression to get the file size down to about 100 k

    I use Paint Shop Pro as my JPG editor.
