Description

The SkyHook Hoist / System was designed to simplify confined space and remote rescues requiring a device with lifting and lowering capability. The heart of the system is a two-speed, self-tailing manual winch with a removable handle for compact storage. The SkyHook Hoist utilises any length of standard 1/2" (12 mm) static kernmantle rope used. The winch requires minimum maintenance providing a gear ratio of 2.2 to 1 and 6 to 1. The winch is mounted to a versatile base plate which also features a Guide Roller Assembly (GRA) which allows for easy placement or removal of the specified static Kernmantle rope. The GRA is designed with attachment holes which will accept single and / or tandem Prusik or safety device. When the Prusik safety is attached and the rope is loaded, the unit provides the user the ability to remove or replace the load rope and change to a second loaded rope, minimizing the time and equipment needed to duplicate the raising and lowering system. The universal anchor mount can connect quickly to a Tripod systems legs, but has the flexibility to be attached to a variety of structures via tie down holes, webbing straps or a trailer hitch where a remote work site is involved.
