The contribution deals with a device, which allows recording values of tensile forces acting on steel ropes. At the same time, this device allows setting of the same values of tensile forces in carrier ropes within multi-rope systems, which are initially unevenly subjected to tension by the action of the weight suspended on these ropes. In the contribution, two principles of devices for setting the required value of tensile force in ropes are mentioned and subjected to the analysis of practical applicability. The paper describes in detail the design and principle of operation of the mechanical device for setting the required value of tensile force in ropes, which uses screw drive and tensile force sensor.
