The multi-purpose snatch block will double the pulling power of any winch and can change your pulling direction without damaging the wire rope. Us of the snatch block will also help in reducing heat build up and amperage draw.
First one UPS lost, but 4 Wheel Parts quickly shipped a replacement out that arrived quickly! Great service from 4 Wheel Parts! Above and beyond what I expected!

Happy Farmer for Christmas!
This heavy duty pulley really made some difficult lifting jobs much easier around our farm. Also, helps with the occasional rescue from the mud.

18,000 lb. Snatch Block by Smittybilt
I went to the 4 wheel store in SLC and was actually looking for a different brand of snatch block. They had 3 brands in stock and I choose this one. It looked strong and was rated higher than what I needed. The price was the lowest of their stocking brands. This will hopefully never have to be used on my 2005 Rubicon. Wishful thinking. In the recent past I have needed one at least twice. Hopefully, this will give me some added comfort and possibly save my day.

I bought this to use to drop 5 trees that were in tight spaces in my neighborhood. It allowed me to pull in the direction needed from a safe position. Has a 36k lb breaking strength and a 6 ton working load. Plenty of room for my 3/8" cable. I maxed out my Warn 8274 and the snatchblock never had any issues. Only downfall and reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is it has "Made in China" in the casting.

Good solid piece for excellent price
Constant use hasn't seemed to effect it. I figured at the price I couldn't loose, but I was sure it wasn't going to last. So far it's proving me wrong.
Sir, Yes this snatch block will work with synthetic. Thanks for the question.
How do the snatch block work?

Hello CJ from Newburgh,NY and thank you for the inquiry on the smittybilt 18,000 snatch block.
A snatch block has two primary functions in recovery winching. One is to change the direction of your winch cable when the anchor point is offset. The second is to increase the pulling power of your winch.
