A swivel eye pulley block gives a diversely mountable fixture with dynamic rotation of the block, which can be used with wire rope (cable), nylon rope or fibrous rope.   A swivel eye pulley block is a perfect option when an application needs slight rotation in picking up a load.  It can be mounted in an existing rod, bolt, shackle or other fastening specifications.  Swivel eye pulley blocks offer an eye that can slide over existing pipes, bolts and rods, or attach over various fittings, such as a shackle.

Block Division’s pulley blocks are made with a zinc electroplated finish, which offers corrosion resistance and is an excellent finish for both indoor and outdoor use.  Block Division also offers our smaller swivel eye blocks in a stainless steel finish, which include sizes 1-1/2" through 3".   Stainless steel is an excellent finish on pulley blocks for use in product applications with exposure to possible corrosion or extreme exposure to dust, chemicals or other environmental situations (such as salt water).   In some cases, it is an industry requirement that Block Division’s heavy duty pulley block parts be finished in stainless steel.  For example, our stainless steel option is the finish of choice for companies in the food and beverage industry. 

Block Division offers a "Snatch-pin" option that is applicable in a larger number of our pulleys. The center fastener (rivet) has a removable pin which lends access to the internal components (sheaves, steel spacers, bushings or bearings) of our Blocks. It also allows the user to inspect, maintain and possibly replace any of the internal components. The "Snatch- Pin" is a great option that enhances the life of the Block.  Additionally, we offer optional bolt fasteners as a replacement to the standard rivet fasteners.  Tips on how to maintain your swivel eye pulley block are located here.

Replacement sheaves are also available.  In most cases, our pulley blocks ship the same day or the next business day.
