Do We Need Chain Motors?

A lot of churches today are moving to chain motors to raise and lower their lighting and truss rigs. Daniel and the DC Pro team talk through what a chain motor is, why they’re useful, and also talk about if your church needs them or not.

Key Points:
  • Aircraft cable chain hoists from local hardware stores are NOT rated to lift objects above people’s heads.
  • Make sure the chain motor you use is equipped with a braking system. This is crucial to keeping your rig safe.

⚠️ ALWAYS consult properly licensed local experts before performing potentially dangerous work. Safe rigging takes experience and training, and possibly carries licensing and insurance requirements, depending on where you live.
