Fitted to a pad eye or toe rail Wichard snatch blocks are highly useful
for taking up a rope that is already reeved. The elastomer moulded
cheeks make them shock and scratch-resistant. Each one is fitted
with a snap shackle which allows them to move freely in any position.
With its forged high-resistance stainless steel arm, the closing
system is very strong. It can be opened very easily by pulling on the
central plunger pin, as you would do with a normal snap shackle.
