The EasyHoist was designed to lift small loads (up to 100 kg) required in structures, smoke stacks and scaffolding in a manner that is both safe and ergonomically efficient. 

How often have you been witness to workers lifting small pieces of equipment, e.g. a welding machine, toolboxes or flanges while hanging over the hand railing of a structure? Should the worker lose his foot grip whilst in this position, he will have to let go of the rope to regain his balance and in the process possibly damage expensive equipment. Furthermore, the unnatural body position can result in lower back pain and, over the longer term, even result in injury to the spinal cord. 

The EasyHoist addresses both these concerns. It is equipped with an adjustable brake system. This allows the worker to take his hand off the rope without the load dropping to the ground. It also enables the worker to stand in an upright position,which does not put any strain on the lower back.


  • The hoist consists of a vertical support onto which a 350 mm long cantilever beam can rotate through 360 degrees.
  • A lock pin is used to lock the cantilever beam into position while raising or lowering a load.
  • Made from imported high strength steel from Sweden (up to 950 MPa UTS)
  • Up to 100 kg lifting capacity
  • No electrical power required to operate
  • Weighs 17 kg, excluding the rope and pulley.
  • Disassembles into two pieces for ease of transportation and storage.
  • Easily hooks and clamps onto existing hand railing or purpose made hooking points. The latter can also be supplied on request.
  • Equipped with an anti-rollback brake which can easily be engaged and disengaged.
  • Rope guides ensure proper winding of the rope onto the hoist drum.
  • A rope tension mechanism prevents the rope from jumping off the drum under no-load conditions.
  • A safety mechanism ensures that all the windings are wound onto the drum, in line with the requirements of the OSH act and MHSA.
  • All surfaces are electro-galvanized and epoxy coated.
  • Low maintenance
  • Precision components
  • 12-month warranty.
