2. Push the thumb release on ratchet to free rope and pull the ratchet close to the bag loops.
3. Hook bag loops onto the S hook or separate carabiner attached to black ratchet.

Recommended for 10 gallons and up - This locking ratchet is made to lift the BIG grain bills. The rope is Solid Braided Polypropylene and the hooks are Zinc Plated Steel. To remove the bag, pull up on the bag to reduce tension and push the thumb release. If the release will be out of reach, attach the 1/8" rope and pull down.

I love this product and explained why in my earlier review. I have read others who had trouble getting the black release cord to activate the switch. My unit came with the cord threaded with the tied knot on the top of the switch. I changed mine so that the knot was on the bottom of the switch. This allows the black cord to run over the top and pull from the top of the switch. Much more mechanical advantage and no problems getting it to work. Perhaps BrewBag can do this for future customers and save them the time.
Makes 25lbs of wet grain feel like a walk in the park. Works very well, make sure you practice before brewday.
I use this with a 10 gallon water cooler in A HERMS setup. It makes separating grain from the mash very clean and allows a much easier transition to clean in place operations without needing to disconnect the lines.
The only complaint is the plastic release tab on the ratchet has a tiny pull rope to engage it doesn’t really work. I found myself having to use my finger to get it release consistently.
Nicholas - when using the black cord to release the object, lift the object slightly to release the pressure on the locking mechanism - then pull the rope. Be sure to have the red rope tied off or be holding it when that happens.
Really nice addition to the brew room. Makes one person brewing so much easier.
