  3. where will snatch blocks typically have their weight ratings stamped
    on the hook or shell
  4. always read the ____ ______ and calculate the _______ involved in a rigging application before using the block
    weight rating, tensions
  5. when the angle of the rope through the block decreases, the tension on the block
  6. when is friction created on a rope
    when it passes through the sheave on a block
  7. what is the amount of tension on a snatch block dependent upon

  15. name the 7 components of a snatch block
    hook, safety latch, shell, sheave, center pin, locking pin, pivot pin
  16. snatch block tension =
    line out times angle factor
  17. explain how tensions on a snatch block are created
    the angle a rope passes through a block
  18. what is the formula that is used to determine what the line out force will be after a rope passes through a block
    line in times 1.1 = line out
  19. when would you use parted blocks to hang an overhead transformer

  20. what should hook and safety latch be inspected for
    bent hook, defective safety latch, excessive wear at all contact points, metal fatigue, rust
  21. what should locking pin, pivot pin, and swivel be inspected for
    metal fatigue, rust, and excessive wear, swivel operates freely, lubricate if recommended
  22. what should the shell be inspected for
    cracks and breaks and sharp edges that can damage rope
  23. what should center pin be inspected for
