A hand puller, also known as a come-along or cable puller, is a tool used to pull or lift heavy objects. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use a hand puller:
Identify the anchor point: Before using the hand puller, you need to find a secure anchor point to which you can attach the puller. The anchor point should be strong enough to withstand the weight you are trying to pull or lift.
Attach the hook: The hand puller usually comes with hooks on either end of the cable. Attach one of the hooks to the object you want to move, and the other to the anchor point.
Tighten the cable: Use the ratchet mechanism on the hand puller to tighten the cable. Turn the ratchet handle clockwise to tighten the cable and take up the slack.
Begin pulling: Once the cable is tight, start pulling the handle in a pumping motion to move the object. You may need to repeat this step several times to get the object to move.
Release tension: After you have moved the object, release the tension on the hand puller by turning the ratchet handle counterclockwise. You can then remove the hooks from the object and anchor point.
Note: It's essential to use the hand puller carefully and to follow the manufacturer's instructions. Overloading or misusing the hand puller can result in injury or damage to the equipment.
