Stagemaker makes it safe, easy and convenient to replace the pigtails on your hoist with its slide-in pigtail design. Watch Jay Cid, Stagemaker’s Business Development Manager, replace the pigtails on a Stagemaker SR05 hoist.

- Unplug the first pigtail from the board and slide it out then do the same with the second pigtail if needed.
- Replace the pigtails by lining up the beveled edges to the entry plate edges and slide it in
- Reconnect the plugs to the board. Do the same with the second pigtail, if needed.
- Insert the plugs and cables back into the hoist, paying attention not to cover the hole at the bottom so the you can adjust the limit switch.
