This device replaces the multi-purchase tackle system in a traditional traveler control system with one simple closed-loop circuit - similar to a clothesline, but with a mechanical advantage. It is powered with a regular winch handle and features an efficient, clean layout, that provides more power and control than a traditional system.
The system uses a self-tailing, rope-gripping pulley that operates in either direction - even if the line is not under tension. A simple clutch lever determines the direction in which the traveler moves, or allows for it to be locked in position.
