Ratchet. Let’s face it – not the most pleasant sounding word in the English language. Spoken quickly (or even not so quickly) it sounds like “rat shit”.
On the long list of items required in the growroom, the rope ratchet is probably the last one you’d remember if playing some tedious memory game. And yet, unheralded as they are – like the front row of a scrum, or a fluffer in a porn film – they perform a vital function. “Unsung heroes” might be stretching it, but how else were you planning on hanging up those carbon filters, lights and reflectors? With dental floss? Your small intestine?
In this issue of HYDROMAG, we take a look at one of a personal favourite of ours – Garden HighPro’s range of rope ratchets and pulleys – and examine just why we think they’re so great.
