You only need three carabiners, some rope, and a place to hang the system.

The kids will love to see how much weight they can lift off the ground.

    have you or your kids tried complicating this much. I tried having two of these next to each other forming a miniature bike hoist set up, and when i go to lift my load, only the front lifts. Wondering if its just me or is it friction

    Im not sure. If the front is lighter than the back (usually is) then the front would lift first if they are hooked to the same rope. If you use 2 seperate ropes, then it might work for you.
