The Rugged Ridge Snatch Block Pulley has two distinct purposes in vehicle recovery. The Snatch Block Pulley permits you to perform offset pulls effectively when the anchor point is not directly in line with the stuck vehicle. Also, the pulley allows you to perform a double line pull, effectively doubling the pulling power of your winch and reducing the strain on the winch motor, for those times when you are REALLY stuck or you are recovering a vehicle larger than yours. We have paired our 20,000 lbs. snatch block pulley with a high-visibility winch line dampener for a versatile addition to your recovery gear kit.
