the Buckingham OX BLOCK is a rope snatch block with an integrated friction bar used for lowering loads, snubbing loads, and raising loads.
key features & application
- it allows the rigging professional to handle loads with greater control.
- when lowering loads, tension is transferred from the worker to the OX BLOCK .
- the OX BLOCK replaces standard handline blocks, parted blocks, and various snatch blocks. the OX BLOCK also has greater working load limits than blocks of similar size
- when configured with optional pulleys, the OX BLOCK can be used to create a 4:1, 5:1 or 6:1 mechanical advantage reducing the amount of force needed to lift heavy loads.
- the advantage of the pulleys used by Buckingham is the swivel side plate that allows for quick and easy rope installation without removing the pulley from the connecting device.
