SENDING A WRENCH UP THE LINE .. Simply split the line, by turning the line
in .. usuallly .. the counter clocks wise mode, make an opening WITHIN THE
BRAID .. and, there you go, put your wrench, bolt, whatever, in the line ..
and, you can do this multiple times .. then hoist away. Have done this many
many hundreds of times, OM .. worky worky, each and every time.
