Yes, it is. The breaking strength of our Snatch Block is 13,668 pounds which will not be exceeded if you stay within the Lewis Winch's 8,000 lb. maximum load. Only a fraction of that load will actually be on the Snatch Block. For rigging purposes where life may be at stake, we recommend using our larger Snatch Block with a breaking strength of 39,903 pounds.
