Check the Operating Load Limit (WLL) of both snatch block and the wire rope. If the WLL of the pulley is not compatible with the WLL of the rope, it can create a dangerous scenario if each one should fail.
Coordinate the size of the sheave in the snatch prevent to the size of the wire rope. If the wire rope is too big for the sheave, the block can crack. Generally, the wire rope-to-sheave size ratio should be 12:1 so as to hold the wire effectively while under load.

This cuts the immediate pull load in half, which doubles the number of pounds your winch can draw.
