This vintage snatch block with attached hook is for rope, actual rope, not wire rope. It appears to be military surplus due to the type and colors of the paint layers, but there were no discernible markings. The inner pulley wheel turns freely with no catches or dragging, but it was not tested under load.
- Best measurement appears that the snatch block supports rope with a maximum diameter of 7/8″ (not guaranteed).
- ~16″ long from end to end
- Hook opening ~1-3/4″
- Hook depth ~2-1/2″
- Unknown working load limit.
- Much surface rust and flaking paint, but still completely sound and appears fully functional.
- Weighs about 9.125 lbs
