Chain & Chain Hoists

Garage Door Chain and Chain Hoists 

A chain hoist is a mechanism to lift and lower heavy loads, such as a garage door. It uses a chain to make the door adjustments. When the chain is pulled, the movement causes it to wind around the wheels of the chain hoist. From there, it begins to lift the garage door, which is typically attached to the chain through a hook. 

These chain hoists are incredibly beneficial when using a garage door because you can quickly and safely open it. There is a wide array of garage chains options available on the market, which include:
