Stop busting your chops to hang your kill in a tree.
The Hoist'N Lok™ Big Game Hoist was designed by supreme hunter, guide and general outdoor boss, Russ Kommer. The Hoist'N Lok™ is a patented 4:1 mechanical ratio pulley system that makes hanging your animal quick and easy. The game hoist has an aluminum pulley with a knurled cam that locks the rope into place by simply moving it to the side. The simple, yet effective mechanism removes the task of finding somewhere to tie the rope off while keeping the load hanging. The Hoist'N Lok™ makes the process a one person operation that doesn't require any knots or hassle. To adjust or lower the load, simply pull the rope to the opposite side and the cam releases, making it easy to hang the animal higher or lower for skinning and processing.
The Hoist'N Lok™ Big Game Hoist comes with a stainless steel gambrel that is welded and powder coated for strength and durability. The hoist is rated to a capacity of 500 lbs. (226.8 kg) and it's built as tough as the hunters who use it.
At the SHOT Show I was so impressed with the Hoist'N Lok game hoist that I ordered one once I got back to San Diego. It came in and I had a chance to look at the hoist closer. I like it The Gabrel is pretty heavy duty but I would suggest one modification to it. I would add an additional piece to the ends of each arm approximately 1.5-2 inches in length dirrected in the direction of the lifting point of the gambrel. This would allow the hunter to remove one of the quarters without the other quarter falling off of the gambrel. I have made alterations to some of the other gambrels I own and they are more efficient than yours. I am a Master Hunter Education Instructor for California and teach advanced clinics on wild game care for both wild pig and big game. I love showing students and staff what works best in the field and have used various hoists/gambrel combinations over the last 15 years of teaching and over 40 years of hunting. The hoist is one of the best I have seen. The system could be the best with the slight modification to the ends or the gambrel arms. Just offering some positive feedback. I do not wish to offend. I love the CRKT brand and will keep using your equipment. Hunt Safe, CRKT Response: Thank you for your suggestions!
