4 in. 3 Ton Snatch Block
Featuring a 3-ton (6,000 lbs) stamped rating, this 4 in 3 ton snatch block is a medium-duty block. The block is hot-dipped galvanized for a long-lasting finish. It can accept boat lift cables up to 1/2 inch in diameter. The boat lift cable is installed on the sheave inside the yarding block housing. The snatch block has a 4-inch sheave installed at the factory. When the cable moves up or down, the sheave moves. Comes with an installed 1/4 in grease fitting that is protected. The block is equipped with a breakaway shackle at the top. They are ready to install. Boat lifts use them at the corners. This allows boat lift cables to be redirected.
