Owning a device is not just about buying one, but about proper usage as well. It is very important that you be familiar with the basic working of the device and the various components that it has to ensure that not just the tasks can be carried out in a satisfactory manner but it is easier for you to deal with any problems that you may encounter in the working of the device.
Thus, after you find come along winches that are ideal for your range of applications, take some time to learn about all of its parts from the instruction manual or the trader who sold it to you so that whenever you may need it in the future, you are able to help yourself in the proper and uninterrupted usage of the device.
Here are all the parts of a come along winch and the functions that they are meant to perform that ultimately yield the proper operation of the device:
To find come along winches that may suit your range of application is basically a search for the strongest cable that can withstand loads that you intend to pull. The cable is the basic stretch of metal wire that connects the load and come along and performs the actual pulling operation.
This is the part that is pulled back and forth to ensure that the device gradually moves up to the desired destination.
They are basically of two types. There is a primary one that is used to attach the pulling cable to the load and the other one that is used only in case of double line set ups to achieve the required operation on connection with the hanger.
• WINDING PAWL:
While on the quest to find come along winches that are ideal for your usage, check for the part that helps the pulling cable wind on to the drum with back and forth movements of the handle by helping in engaging the winding drum ratchet.
This is the part that is used to hold the secondary hook in case of operations that require two lines of pulling cables.
• DRUM SAFETY PAWL LEVER:
This is used to release the wire from the wound stance to the freely running one so that it can be connected to the load for the pulling operation. For this, take care that the ratchet remains engaged only when the load is supported in some way or the other and the cable is in static tension. In case of dynamic tension, it is not at all recommended to disengage the ratchet using this lever as it can lead to serious injury on account of the wire at a very high speed.
• WINDING PAWL LOCK:
In order to find come along winches that are ideally suited to the uses that you want them for, the winding pawl lock should be very carefully checked before the actual purchase in order to ensure that the system does not yield in any way and the wire does not get released when the pulling operation is stopped for a while for rearrangement to give the cable more distance.
Thus, all these above parts, along with all the accessories that a come along comes within the market, aid the proper pulling, lifting and hoisting operations of the loads that you help want to move. Thus, in the quest to find come along winches that are perfectly applicable and ideal for you, it should be properly checked and tested that all the parts listed above are in proper working condition as they form the most strategic components of the come along.
