jeepers29 Yes I saw that, I just like to be on the safe side. As a home builder, I know the truss companies tend to use the cheapest materials they can. You will enjoy the ease that hoist provides you.

I meant that the pipe spans across 6 trusses to spread the load. TYPO.

jeepers29 Looks nice! I would nail some 2x6 to your trusses at the nail plates. Your trusses werenot designed to carry a load at those points. 2 feet centered on the nail plates will be more than enough. That way you don't have everything come crashing down.
