I dont know, but when you find a good one, let me know! I just bought
one at Ames and it immediatly jammed and then as soon as we freed it up,
the cable came right off the reel!
I'm also having a bit of a hard time finding one that has a long single
cable, and not the hook with a pulley, which doubles the leverage, but
cuts the range in half. For putting guys on, it's best to get one with
a long single cable instead of a double which may not be long enough.
I bought another one at Home Depot which was OK, but it was the double
cable type and it's not quite long enough to do guys comfortably.
