Home Depot sell's two versions of it's "POW'R PULL"
with either a single 12 ft range or a double with 6 ft range.
These units are made with a solid ratchet instead of the cheapies
that use several plates bolted together.
BTW, it is easy to convert a double to a single by simply connecting the
wire end to the pulley instead of back to the come-along.
