Things to check:
Top Plate Connections:
- Make sure that all the screws, nuts, and bolts, are tight.
- Check the Hauling Line rope to see that is secure and not worn.
- Check the Lift Line Terminations to see that they are all secure.
|Not Good Example . . .|
|Not buried like this . . .|
|Tight nuts are good to keep your rod in place.|
|Note the thimble to keep the rope from abrading on the lower arbor eye.|
Keep a good eye on your arbors and watch for loose parts! If something gives-way it could be deadly!
