motor run free. However, do not use this safety device as a means
to stop the hoisting.
1-3 Do not re-adjust the setting of friction clutch
The clutch sets already to function satisfactorily before the
delivery from factory: therefore, do not attempt to re-adjust the
clutch setting at your end.
Hang precisely any loads on the hook.
As shown in the Figure 9, sling precisely. As shown in the Figure 10,
if you sling any load forcibly or bind directly the load to the hook,
slings may be slipped off or the hook will be deformed, which are
causes of accidents. As for slings, it is recommended to use safe
and effective sling.
3. Safety latch on hook
A safety latch is provided on a bottom hook to avoid a sling from slip-
ping off the hook. Make sure before hoisting if the safety latch is
correctly positioned as shown in Fig. 9.
4. Do not hoist a load with multiples of hoists.
This is dangerous. Never hoist a load with two or more hoists. If
such is unavoidable, distribute the load evenly to each hoist used and
do not overload any hoists.
5. Always hoist load at its center of gravity.
Always hoist load at its center of gravity. If not, unbalanced load
may not only slip off from the hook, but also, in case of trolley type,
cocked trolley may force the beam to swing slideways.
