Nice video! Wish I could see above where the chainfalls are attached and how it lays back before it is lowered onto the pallet.

Yeah really, the preparator/geek in us is going "How are the beams spanning the scaffolding set up?" "Is that just Tyvek softwrap or something else around the round slings?"

The straps seem to be knotted to the chain hoist hooks. How does that work?

I was assuming that those were just extra wraps to take up slack maybe?

Here is another rigging video and article from the Whitney:


The time lapse install video in the gallery shows two yellow rigging equipment that I have seen before elsewhere for installing a very large (heavy frame) painting with a aviation cable on the back of the frame. They used sand bags as counter weights.http://www.paccin.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=1731&stc=1
