OX BLOCK™ WITH OX HORN™ and SLING – 50062AD-4
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:
- Snubbing loads.
Distributors stocking this product are listed below and typically ship within a week. If no distributors are listed, the product will typically ship within 7 to 14 days.
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.
