Using a Gin Wheel
A gin wheel is an ideal piece of lifting equipment for lifting lightweight loads to a higher area, such as the top of a scaffold tower, they consist of a single wheel over which a rope of any length can be pulled and will lift the load attached to one end vertically to where it is required.
The gin wheel incorporates an eye attachment point which makes it easy to slip over a scaffold pole. There is a type of rope guide to ensure the rope in place, and can't be pulled off the wheel whilst in use.
