The following accessories are necessary to attach the winch to anchors, change direction of pull, and for safe winching.

Snatch/Block Pulley: Used properly, the multi-purpose snatch block allows you to (1) increase the winch's pulling power; and (2) change your pulling direction without damaging the wire rope.

Proper use of the snatch block is covered in Before You Pull.
