I am in the middle of installing this hoist system, based on the Harbor Freight bicycle hoist:
My problem is that when I pull on the rope (from the right in that picture), only one end of the kayak is pulled up toward the ceiling (the side with the yellow strap).
Now, if I hold down one end, or get that end all the way to the top, the other end will get pulled up, but I had expected both ends to rise at the same rate. Am I expecting too much? I’ve played around with adjusting the strap locations, but haven’t found a sweet spot yet.
How does yours work?
