  • block and tackle for lifting W.HS.

    Thanks Rick, remembered Your 1 man rig. Ground a slot in a 3/4" end cap, welded in a
    heavy metal ring. Made up a block and tackle. Works great!
    I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

    interesting. i just drilled a hole and installed a lifting rated eye ring/ hook. i have 3/4'' and 1'' for the 75 gal. on a 100 gallon i have a set of 2 x 1.5'' tees and then slide a pipe through the center of the twin 2'' tees. this way the lift stays dead center from the hot and cold. for the big ones i use an electric winch so i can free up both hands to position the heater.

    even have used it for a 36'' x 36'' traffic weight solid sump pit cover.

    so now you know how to get it up
