What Are Fiddle Blocks?
Right off the bat, we’ll talk a bit about Fiddle Blocks. Fiddle Blocks are devices that are designed to create a lift for rigging. They are sometimes referred to at “Five To Ones” as they will give you a 5:1 mechanical advantage in your rigging applications. This makes Fiddle Blocks perfect for tree removal and heavy lifting, especially when used in conjunction with a port a wrap.
Features Of Our Fiddle Blocks:
- Work Well With Port-A-Wraps
- Used To Create A 5:1 Mechanical Advantage
- Excellent For Tree Removal And Heavy Rigging
What Are Lever Hoists?
Just like Fiddle Blocks, Lever Hoists are used to raise a load, using slack to your advantage. These particular tools utilize a ratchet system for you to crank while elevating a load or letting it down. They will reliably get a job done quickly and efficiently. With these tools, loads will land nice and easy on the ground. Lever hoists are popular on shipyards, in metalwork, on oil rigs, and in construction.
Benefits Of Using Lever Hoists:
- Raises A Load Using Slack
- Allows A Load To Land Gently
- Gets Jobs Done Quickly & Efficient
Now that we’ve focused a bit on Lever Hoists, let’s discuss another type of gear for heavy-duty lifting- Snatch Blocks.
What Snatch Block Used For?
Snatch Blocks are a powerful type of lever used to redirect tension and the force of a load. Snatch Blocks can be used with a wide variety of lengths and diameters of ropes. Used properly, they will multiply the force of your mechanical advantage in rigging significantly. Our Snatch Blocks are available in several different variations with different types of hooks and shackles.
Benefits Of Using Snatch Blocks:
- Redirects Force And Tension
- Multiplies The Mechanical Advantage On A Load
