Lowering Devices

Lowering Devices
  • The new Buckingham OX BLOCK™ is a rope snatch block with an integrated friction bar used for hurt man rescue, lowering loads, snubbing loads, and raising 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 Working Load Limits than blocks of similar size.

  • Port-A-Wrap - Large

    For use with ropes up to 19mm in diameter. The Port-A-Wrap is a friction device designed for lowering wood with ropes. This simple design allows quick wrapping and unwrapping of working lines, without the time consuming need to remove the device from its anchor point. The Port-A-Wrap requires the use of a strop or whoopie sling to anchor it to a tree. Like most lowering devices, the tree that is being lowered or a tree nearby can be used as the anchoring point, as long as it is clearly substantial enough to withstand the load at hand.
