When a cord goes over a pulley, the force it applies changes direction. In this device, an axle is attached for winding up the cord and the cord goes over a pulley, changing the direction of this force. You can easily see the application of this principle on cranes and other machines. As students experiment with this wooden model, they will learn a basic concept of the laws of physics.

WARNING! Possible entanglement or strangulation injury. The model contains a cord and/or string. Not for children under 3 years.
