Lever hoists, often referred to as come-a-longs are usually used when the user is required to hoist the load up towards the top hook where the user is positioned and has access to operate the ratchet lever. If hoisting from ground level, you might require a chain block (hand chain hoist). Alternatively, lever hoists are commonly used to tension, pull and position loads, often horizontally.
The most common way to suspend a ratchet lever hoist is using the top hook and a beam clamp or trolley. Simply secure the clamp or trolley to a suitably rated beam and attached the lever hoist using its top hook, ensure the safety catch is closed and you can begin hoisting by cranking the ratchet on the unit, this lifts the load as the chain passes through the ratchet hoist unit. To Lower, simply click the directional switch to the down position and continue to crank operate the ratchet in the same way.
