Pls school me on snatch blocks
 
So is there a good article anyone knows of on the usage & how they work?
I read they increase the amount a winch can pull,but how?
Now suppose I was really stuck.I could pull the cable from my winch,attach the snatch block to a tree in front of me then back to my Jeep. What about if someone else was really stuck? How would I go about that situation?

Attach the snatch block to the really stuck guy, then run your winch cable through the snatch block & back to your Jeep. Then attach your Jeep to a tree behind you or you will just drag your Jeep towards the really stuck guy :)

When you purchase one, be sure its a quality part :thumb: Also, protect your winch cable, in case it fails :facepalm:

With enough snatch blocks in a system, you could pull out any stuck rig by hand! But, it would be real sloooooooooooow! :nonono:

I dont believe thats used to protect the cable,no?

Its used to protect the people in the area incase there is a failure in the line or a hook.... It helps dampen the stored energy in the cable....

It's a pulley so it doubles the line pull at the sacrifice of speed. Just a simple machine.
