Shane, when you e-mailed me about this I guess I was thinking you
wanted to know how to make it work rather than what applications it
could be used for. Sorry.
I guess any time you want to draw two points closer together and have
them stay you could use it. You could also use it to make an
adjustable-length link, so that you get just the size you want. I've
heard of someone using it to release life boats down to water level,
but it seems there are better ways of doing that, so I wouldn't
recommend such use. Yes, you could use it to lower a load bit by bit
and have it stay at certain levels.
You don't get a lot of tension out of a Poldo Tackle, like you do
with a Versatackle, but it's easier to quickly adjust it to
lengthen. One advantage with the Poldo Tackle is that in some cases,
you may never need to really untie it. A disadvantage is that
jerking or excessive movement will overcome the friction of the Poldo
Tackle and allow it to lengthen on its own, so it's limited to
strictly static situations, though it never comes entirely untied
unless the loop knots you choose work loose.
Maybe I should include more verbage in my description of the Poldo
Tackle on my page. I hope those observations can help you brainstorm
applications of your own.
