While this hardware is made under several names, they are all high quality overhead rack systems. The instructions are clear and the hardware is quality made. The included lifting straps are a great help. I am holding a 60 pound tandem bike overhead in my garage, suspended by a home made cantilever beam which holds the bike about 2.5 feet out from a vertical wall, as my garage ceiling is 18 feet high (too high to directly attach this hoist to a garage ceiling rafter). The front hooks of the hoist hold the front handlebars, and a lifting strap supports the rear of the bike, because the rear seat on the tandem would not support the weight of the bike itself. The two-rope hoist system (actually one long rope but it acts as a two rope system) is the one to have as a one rope system will not allow level lifting of the object. I adjust the ropes so that my heavy bike is level when hoisted upward, and then I just pull the two ropes together. The pulley system is designed so that both ropes pulled together are half the lifted weight of the object; I am only pulling 30 pounds to lift my 60 pound bike. The rope locking system is secure, but just to be safe I added an additional double pulley system with a separate rope and wall cleat to also hold the weight of the bike, but is it probably not necessary as my bike is below the maximal weight of this hoist system. Do not hesitate to buy this; my huge bike is now up off the floor freeing up garage space, and instantly accessible when I need it.
