Inverted (Theater) Lodestar Hoists

These hoists are designed for temporary rigging and lifting applications where it is impractical to lift a hoist into position. The hoist is "inverted" so only the hook at the end of the load chain needs to be lifted. This hoist is versatile, since you can also use it in an upright position.
