A heavy duty switch dictates whether the hoist can raise or lower a load. The switch can also be fixed to a neutral position, enabling the operator to free spool the chain to the desired length needed for the application.

Depress the retaining paw and pull the grip ring outward.
Release the retaining paw, and adjust the chain to the desired length needed.

With the chain at the correct length, depress the retaining paw. Push the grip ring inward, and then, clockwise so that it will correctly set itself outside of the retaining plate.
