The Buckingham OX BLOCK™ is a rope snatch block. It has a built-in friction bar used for hurt man rescue and lowering, snubbing, and raising. When lowering, tension is transferred from the worker to the snatch block. It replaces standard handline, parted, and various snatch blocks.
It also has greater working load limit than blocks of similar size. It allows rigging professionals greater control over heavy loads. The Buckingham OX BLOCK™ is a great choice for professional arborists or those involved in aerial rescue.
