Recommended for 5 gallons or less - This locking ratchet can lift and hold up 150 pounds. For safety when brewing alone, we recommend using it for 5 gallon or less grain bills. The rope is Solid Braided Polypropylene and the hooks are Zinc Plated Steel. To use, attach black ratchet side S hook on a safe suitable hanger, then attach the hanging S hook to the bag loops and pull the loose end of the rope to lift and lock the ratchet in place. To loosen, just pull the tight rope to reduce tension and push the thumb release.

Very easy to use and works great with my grist amounts which are typically 2 gal batches so around 5 lb, but it feels sturdy enough to handle much more. I added a carabiner to the bottom hook to make sure it holds the BIAB securely.
This is a great compliment to the Brew Bag. I have a basement brewery set up and this ratchet is the perfect item for lifting the bag safely.
Before using this, I always had to tie the rope off and it made it a PITA to adjust it. With this pulley and locking action, it is very easy to lift the bag and make adjustments. I thought it might not be strong enough, but it worked great for my 5 gallon batch.
I can't see any other way to make this better. You have to lift the bag out yourself and then pull the slack out with this, but it doesn't budge and holds it in perfect place. For 5 gallon batches it's perfect. Easy to release as well. I set mine up with a 2x4, eye hook and 6 foot ladder. Super glad I got my biab setup at brewinabag.com.
It works for what is. If you lift it will hold the weight of a 5 gallon grain batch.
