Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0134513A2] The invention is a hoist (10) particularly useful for mounting, lifting, and displaying ornamental display objects (12) such as pictures, posters, murals, plexiglass displays, and ornamental fabrics. The hoist has at least two cables (18) that attach to display objects. The two cables are spaced apart to prevent the display object from rotating. The hoist can be mounted to a high ceiling (34) and the cables lowered from a distance by remote control (76) to allow an operator to mount a display object from the ground and then raise it to a desired viewing height.
