Lifting Tackle

A lifting tackle is a device which converts the relatively weak strength of a person into a considerable force able to lift heavy objects, like and engine or transmission.

A lifting tackle is an overhead stationary pulley that is designed to work with a chain or rope. The lifting tackle multiplies a persons lifting capability considerably. As the chain or rope is pulled down from the Lifting tackle by the operator, the other end of the chain (which is connected to the object to be lifted) raises up.

Lifting Tackles usually have a ratcheting mechanism which stops the chain or rope from being pulled back through the device while lifting heavy objects.
