To prevent serious injuries caused during the loading and unloading of heavy equipment from a truck or service van, you'll need the added muscle of an industrial Sky Hook lifting device. Capable of lifting and positioning up to 500 lbs., these industrial lifting devices are the perfect solution for loading generators, tool boxes, or any heavy parts which shouldn't be lifted by hand. As part of the Economy Sky Hook product line, these models incorporate our economical, lever operated friction braking mechanism. The friction brake allows for safe, efficient operation, giving the operator the ability to position the load with precision.

The Economy Sky Hooks with Receiver Hitch Base are designed to mount inside of a standard 2" receiver hitch. The Sky Hook is capable of a full 360° rotation and can be easily removed from the base for transport or storage when not in use. For larger loads it is recommended that the tailgate be removed to allow added clearance for loading.

The Receiver Hitch Mount Sky Hooks are available in both roller chain and cable configurations. Be sure to also check out the Premium Sky Hook Product Line which incorporates our LoadLock clutch brake for a more simplified, easy-to-use brake operation.
