Snatch Blocks

Snatch blocks are one of the most versatile tools available for cruising or racing. The flexibility of these blocks makes them ideal for use as genoa leads, spinnaker controls or short sheet leads. 

Allen's Snatch Blocks feature 30mm and 40mm dynamic bearing technology with an easy to use mechanism for opening and closing the cheeks, Allen snatch blocks are easily attached to control lines with the safe knowledge that they will be secure until they are no longer required.

Schaefer's use an investment cast snap shackle attached with a ball joint enabling full rotation as well as a 15 degree tilting action. This flexibility allows for quick attachment. Urethane cheek covers protect your deck from damage. Each block has an integral bail allowing you to "hang" the block with a shockcord.

Antal's Snatch Blocks are instantly recognizable with a cheekplate that revolves around the sheave axle allowing the block to open; a safety pin, which engages automatically on closing, stops the block from opening accidentally. 

Barton's ever popular range are a rugged construction with an easy open/close action. Two sizes - accepting lines up to 16mm Ø (5/8"), the range features a choice of stainless snap shackles or stainless steel 'D' shackle.

Barton also have a range of Industrial Pulley Snatch Blocks, designed for easy use in commercial, industrial, DIY and marine settings to move and lift loads securely.
