Carolina North 10026 3/8" Rop Ratchet, 250 lbs Capacity

3/8″ Rope Ratchet, 250 lbs Capacity by Carolina North


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 250 Pounds maximum load limit
  • Easy to use thumb lever releases tension
  • Perfect for a wide variety of uses for home, office, workroom and garden

Rope ratchet is made super tough to take all the hard work you do. The outer casings are made from #6 – 33 percent glass filled nylon with interior mechanisms of die cast zinc. With the 3/8″ rope ratchet you simply attach the two hooks and pull the loose end of the rope for a secure, tight hold. Rope ratchets stay tight, locking in place as you pull the free end. To loosen you just pull the rope to reduce tension and push the handy thumb release. It’s that easy. This rope ratchet holds ups to 250 lbs per ratchet. Actual body size: 3-1/2″ x 2″.


Note from HBF: Given the right setup, this looks like it could be used as a pulley for a BIAB setup.  Of course, you’ll want a capable place to hang it and want to make sure to stay under this rated capacity.  Note: Always read and follow manufacturer’s directions.

Small Batch, All Grain Stove Top Brewing + Water Calculation Spreadsheet

I periodically brew small (1-3) gallon all grain batches of beer on my stove top.  Some reasons I do that… 1.  The weather – it’s too cold, too hot or too something else, 2.  Time or 3.  I want to test something.  It’s a fun, simple, quick and economical way to brew all grain with minimal investment.

For the extract brewer, what kind of gear is needed to accomplish this amazing feat?  A comprehensive list follows…

A Rare Deal + Hands on Review: Wort Hog Turnkey Electric e-BIAB System!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Wort Hog 120V eBIAB System

When it comes to electric Brew In A Bag (eBIAB) systems, there are several choices out there. I’ve tried both 240 Volt and 120 Volt systems. While I love the speed of heating water/wort on the 240V systems, I don’t love the constraints/expense of wiring a 240V plug in a convenient place. The 1500 Watt and 1600 Watt eBIAB units out there are good, but they do lack when it comes to speed of heating strike water or getting a really vigorous boil. The Wort Hog 120V system slides into this niche with the convenience of a 120V system, but using a 2250W Blichmann heating element to give a notable boost.


A Rare, Deal, Review Continues Below…

I’ve seen a few promos that apply to this system, but not many and not what I would call substantial.  If you’ve been waiting for a deal on these, today is your day…

System Overview

The Wort Hog Turn Key System via High Gravity Fermentations Supplies uses a Bayou Classic 11-gallon kettle. I’d never seen a Bayou Classic kettle in person before, and I’ll admit I had a pre-conceived opinion of them. I thought of them as “cheap turkey fryers” based on their low price and marketing, but I found my baseless opinion was completely off. This 11-gallon kettle has a super shiny, polished exterior, but most importantly it was made of a very robust thick gauge stainless steel. With high quality, clean welds, this baby is certainly going to live up to wear and tear for a long time, and cleaned up very easily.
