To me it looks like you run your winch cable out and around the pulley, then you hook the winch hook to yourself. You then run a Tow rope through the hole and hook it to a tree or other ATV.

Is this correct?

They work good for a plow too, bolt the snatch block on the plow frame and then place your winch hook back on the front of your quad.

This way your winch hook assembly won't wedge in your fairlead, which would cause it to jam and not come back out to where you have to get off and jerk it out, a real pain.

It also slows the lift and lower of your blade which makes it more controllable and doubles your lifting power too.

I keep one right on my tree strap, then you can either just use the two ends of the strap to put your winch hook in, or loop them through one another and use the snatch block, plus it's always there, I never have to dig for it.
