This new version of the OX BLOCK™ features the OX HORN™ on the shackle top. With its 2” gate opening, it is designed to replace a non-rated “meat hook” currently in use by many linemen. It has a working load limit of 2500 pounds with the gate closed and a 1000 pound working load limit with the gate open.

This OX BLOCK™ handline assembly, as a whole, can be used for hurtman rescue. 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 snatch block with an integrated friction bar used for:

  • Hurtman/self-rescue
  • Lowering
  • Raising
  • Snubbing loads.

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

Usually ships within 7 to 14 days.
