I have 28 foot extension ladder that I use about twice a year and has been taking up precious space leaning against the garage wall. The ladder is too heavy and awkward to hang on wall hooks above head height so I bought the PH-01 to hoist it to the ceiling. The hoist was easy to assemble and install, and works as expected. I took off one star because the pulley flanges seem to be a little shallow and the rope can come off of the pulley if the assembly isn't mounted level and you pull the rope rapidly. This is a minor issue in my opinion since it is easily prevented by being careful to mount the pulley assemblies level. A key feature of this hoist is having independent control of the front and rear lift points through two separate ropes. I have some bike lifts with a single rope system and the bikes never want to raise evenly. Other reviewers have complained that it's too hard to raise the item they are hanging. This is not a problem with the hoist. It feels heavy because all of the weight of the item being lifted is concentrated through the rope and gives the perception that it is "heavier" than expected. Highly recommended.
