Snatch Blocks

Morgan City Rentals stocks high quality brands of snatch blocks from Crosby, McKissick and Johnson.  The snatch block is one of today’s most widely used types of blocks. As generally applied, its title refers to that group of intermittent-service blocks which quickly attach and "snatch” or move loads over relatively short distances. This is opposed to long lifts and continuous service for which crane and construction blocks are designed.

Keep in mind when renting a snatch block, that the overall tension on the snatch block will be more than the weight of the load itself. If you need assistance in determining the correct size snatch block for your lift, please contact our knowledgeable sales team.
