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 working load limits than other blocks of similar size. Uses 5/8" maximum rope. Weight: 2.1 lbs. Overall size: 10 1/2" tall x 3" wide x 2 1/8" thick.
