My mum's got one of those contraptions of 4 strips of wood suspended

into the ceiling by sash-cord-type rope. She's getting on and finding it
hard to manage the weight so I'm thinking of some sort of winch which
would give her a mechanical advantage, or maybe even some sort of
electric gizmo. My Google-fu isn't winning he anyone have any
suggestions for sources of suitable devices?

I've got one too - very useful. Couldn't you persuade her simply to not
load it so much?
