Delta Rigging and Tools stocks McKissick® and Lebus® Snatch Blocks, preferred on rigging jobs because of their proven performance in demanding conditions. Snatch Block models come in Light Champion, Champion and Super Champion styles. Sheave diameters available are 3-1/2" to 24" with capacities from 2 to 30 tons. McKissick® and Lebus® snatch blocks are dual rated to meet the requirements of both short tons and metric tons. Their snatch blocks are of all steel construction, and are fatigue rated, and designed to meet the new Euronorm Standards of 20,000 cycles at 1 ½ times their working load limit. Sheaves for McKissick® and Lebus® snatch blocks have a machine formed groove, and McKissick® blocks include a special high performance lock nut on the no movable side plate for securing the sheave pin. McKissick® and Lebus® snatch blocks are also designed to incorporate a secondary securement system to retain the end fitting connection bolt when the block is in a closed position. The same patented system retains the end fitting connection bolt when the snatch block is in the open position to help avoid the loss of snatch block parts. All McKissick® and Lebus® snatch blocks with a sheave diameter greater than 4 ½ inches and larger come with RFID chips to help streamline and automate the inspection process.
McKissick® and Lebus® provide the most complete line of snatch blocks in the industry. All of their snatch blocks are identified by type, size of block, size of Wireline to be used, working load limit (in both metric and sort tons,) and the manufacturer’s name boldly stamped on the product. These snatch blocks are available with hook, shackle, or tailboard style. Also available are Lebus® Snatch blocks in Bronze Bushed or Roller Bearing configurations. McKissick® and Lebus® snatch blocks incorporate genuine Crosby forged, quenched, and tempered hooks and shackles that include their patented “quick check” marks.
