Premium 4-Leg Mobile Sky Hooks

The Premium Mobile 4-Leg Base Sky Hooks are designed to straddle the corners of benches, pallets, machines and other equipment. Preventing lifting injuries that occur when manually lifting and transporting items while maneuvering around in a tight area are what these units are the best at.

The 4-Leg Mobile Base design can fit down a standard 4’ aisle way and with legs only 6” tall, can easily fit under benches and some equipment frames. The base can be completely disassembled and broken down into pieces weighing 35 lbs. or less making it ideal for transport and storage.

As part of the Premium Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our popular LoadLock clutch brake mechanism. The clutch brake allows for easy-to-operate, secure lifting of up to 500 lbs. Unlike the friction brake found in the Economy Line Sky Hooks, the Premium LoadLock clutch brake does not require the operation of a lever to control the load’s rate of descent. With the LoadLock clutch brake, lowering the load is as easy as cranking the hand wheel in the counter clock-wise direction.

The Bench Mount Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations.

Roller Chain vs. Cable

All Sky Hook models are offered in both roller chain and cable configurations. Each configuration has unique benefits which may make all the difference depending on the lifting application. From the first Sky Hooks built in 1969, roller chain has been the primary lifting tether for these one of a kind lifting devices. Even though cable is definitely more of an industry standard for lifting, roller chain has benefits that have to be considered before making the determination as to which is best suited for your application.

Roller chain offers a consistent rate of travel as the chain passes over a set sprocket size and is stored in the vertical tube of the Sky Hook. Cable on the other hand stacks up on a spool, slightly increasing the amount of force required to lift the load as more of the cable is reeled in. However cable is typically quicker and easier to inspect. Many larger corporations require cable for all internal lifting devices.

Both the roller chain and cable are load rated to meet applicable safety standards. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to end up with a lifting device that will have a smooth and seamless operation.
