Is there another "REAL" name for a come-along? I called a hardware
store and they did not know what that was? Either the guy is real
dumb, or else there is a more "technical" name for them. That's what
I have always called them.
A little googling brings the phrases "hand winch", "hoist pull", "chain
puller", "power puller".
Did you talk to a guy in the store's automotive department? They should
at least *know*. I do know our local ACE has a couple of different models.
Try "hoist" the only name I've ever used is Come along....chain block to me
slightly different device....I have a wire-rope come along that I used for
thing is so old...still works
