The load chain must always mesh
correctly with the load sheave. With multi
fall chain blocks twists can arise by
turning over the bottom hook through the
Regularly lubricate the whole length of
the load chain with machine or gear oil but
be careful not to over lubricate as oil or
grease on the brake discs can cause the
brake to malfunction and slip.
Confirm that the brake is functioning
properly by hoisting the load 100mm and
check the brake when lowering the load.
Non-vertical (sideways pulling) of the
hand chain is not recommended on our chain
The hand chain is equipped with a safety
link. When the safety link opens or deforms,
stop at once and inspect for the cause.
Confirm that the monorail beam or
structure supporting the chain block is of
sufficient strength to support the load to
Never lift loads in excess of the WLL of
the chain block.
Never walk or work under a hoisted load
and never lift, support or transport people.
Use chain blocks manually only.
Do not permit more than one operator to
pull on the hand chain at one time.
Lift loads correctly with proper slings
and attachments. Never lift with the point
of the hook and never use the load chain as
a sling by back hooking.
Lifting a load with two chain blocks is
not recommended. If the operation is
unavoidable, hoist the load with utmost
care, keeping the load balanced.
Never run the load chain out too far.
When operated beyond the range of lift, an
excessive load that can cause damage will be
imposed on the chain block.
Chain blocks are designed for lifting
loads vertically and should not be used for
horizontal or angle hoisting.
Extreme temperatures will reduce the
durability of the hoist. Loads should be
hoisted or lowered very slowly and carefully
in extreme temperatures.
Never leave a load hanging on the hoist.
Never use the chain or hook as a ground
