Lincoln Hoist, the originator of the lever ratchet winch hoist or “come-along,” is introducing improved models that include RFID tags, serialization and more visible markings.

Regular inspection by a qualified person is one of the best ways to prevent accidents with this or most other tools used for lifting or pulling heavy loads. RFID tags help reduce the paperwork burden of performing and maintaining inspection records. Lincoln Hoist's newest improvement embeds a small 8-mm (0.3-inch) RFID chip directly into the main hoist housing to facilitate the task.

In addition, Lincoln Hoist has reached an agreement with Infochip Systems to provide free inspection, certification and tracking software.
