Equiplite™ Snatch Blocks use DSK 75 ULTRA loops to take the loads directly through the center of the sheave. This allows the blocks to be extremely light (75% less than competitive assemblies of the same load). Compact, less windage, quick and easy to operate, compared to competitive blocks, of the same load. Even with cold & wet hands.
High-strength material—low friction, impact resistant
The snatch blocks use molded carbon composite side plates, with high-tensile Hardkote anodized aluminum sheaves for high load types. The bearing utilize advanced high load low friction polymer bearing technology, giving unparalleled loaded bearing efficiency of at least 92% for HL and 94% for VHL... (with dry operation, without need for lubrication). Snatch blocks have unmatched impact and wear resistance.
