Pulley & Blocks

Pulley & Blocks
Pulley and bolcks are common lifting mechanisms used for rigging. Using a snatch block in a block and tackle application reduces the amount of force required to lift an abnormally heavy object. A pulley system is used in conjunction with wire rope or other types of rigging ropes, can be opened on one side to quickly and easily insert a wire rope without having to remove the load or change direction of the cable, by looping the rope through the pulley (around the sheave) several times before hooking to the object. The force required diminishes proportionately with the amount of pulleys or “loops” used during the hoist.
