Buckingham Ox Block for Synthetic Rope
The OX BLOCK™ is a rope snatchblock with an integrated friction bar used for hurtman/self rescue, lowering, raising and 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 OX BLOCK™ replaces standard handline blocks, parted blocks and various snatch blocks. The OX BLOCK™ also 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 allows for quick and easy rope installation without removing the pulley from the connecting device.
