The engineering of a block and tackle uses pulleys to distribute the weight of a heavy object. By lightening the load, the pulleys make it possible for one person or a small crew to move a potentially very heavy object relatively safely. In a single set, a hook from the free swinging pulley is attached to the object being lifted, and the pulleys are threaded with rope. The user pulls on the free end of the rope until the object has been moved. In more complex systems, the rope may run through a series of pulleys to make the end load even less.

A block and tackle is two sets of pulleys linked by a single rope. Pulling the rope draws the block and tackle together. This magnifies the effort put in so that you can lift or lower a heavy load—a car engine, for example. Block and tackle pulley systems have been used for centuries to raise sails and shift cargo on sailing ships.

Many machines combine more than one of these devices to make work easier. For instance, we might attach a long handle to a shaft to make a windlass, or use a block and tackle to pull a load up a ramp. While these machines may seem simple, they continue to provide us with the means to do many things that we could never do without them.
