I have a bunch of 15,000 snatch blocks.  I double them up side by side on a clevis for top and bottom blocks when I need a block and tackle.

I think they were about $20 each and I use them as snatch blocks all the time in the woods so using them as a block and tackle just made sense rather than buying something more expensive with much less capacity.

If I wanted to use them as block and tackles all the time I would probably replace the central pins that the pulley spins on with a longer one that goes through both blocks at once.
