The OX BLOCK™ handline assembly, as a whole, can be used for hurtman rescue. However, DO NOT USE P/N 2406 handline hook [MBS 500lbs] or handline snap [MBS 750 lbs] for human support. All components used for rescue must have a 5000 lb. rating, configured to accept human support. For rigging, ensure the weak link has a 4 to 1 safety factor.
The OX BLOCK™ is a rope snatchblock with an integrated friction bar used for:
- Snubbing loads
OX BLOCK™ with 7' sling & steel carabiner, order model: 50061A-7
*Orders received by 12:00/Noon EST ship same business day. After 12:00/Noon EST ship next business day
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 patented OX BLOCK™ replaces standard handline blocks, parted blocks and various snatch blocks.
- Has greater WLLs 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.
- ASME B30 Compliant
