A swivel hook pulley is a quickly detachable fixture with dynamic rotation of the block. A swivel hook pulley block allows the user some flexibility, as it will rotate when the load is being lifted or moved. In other words, it allows the pulley to swivel to keep the alignment of where it is attached. The hook can be attached into an existing eyelet, rod, bolt, pipe, shackle, or on a custom mounting. Swivel hook pulley blocks can be used for wire rope (cable), fibrous rope or nylon rope.

In most applications, Block Division’s pulley blocks offer the ability for the swivel eye, swivel hook and fixed eye to be interchanged. In choosing whether a fixed eye or swivel hook would be needed you would first determine if you need a swivel or fixed pulley. Then, will the block attach to an existing fixed fixture or one that has movement. This helps to decide what type of fixture would be best according to the application.

Block Division’s pulleys are made with zinc electroplating, which offers corrosion resistance and is an excellent finish for both indoor and outdoor use.

Block Division offers a “snatch” option in all of our pulleys which allows you to remove the center pin (snatch pin). The center fastener is a removable pin, which allows you to remove the pin and then re-insert it over an existing wire or rope application. This is a great option that extends the life of the pulley by offering the ability to remove the sheave if ever it needs replacing.

A steel latch option is also available. This allows for the hook to be engaged in the mounting applicance.

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