Manual handling of heavy loads is proven to be unhealthy and injurious to users. The design of the lifting device acts as a prevention method by reducing the risk of injuries to users. There are many designs and types of lifting devices that have been invented but, most of the devices invented require a lot of space depending on the weight and size of the object that needs to be lifted. Hence, the user mightexperience portability problems. To move or to change the location of the lifting device is a major issue because some of them are having problems in terms of the storage of the lifting device. Only one of the designs is selected and analysed. Strength isthe main subject of this lifting device since the device deals with weights. All parts of the design are analysed by calculating the force that acts on it and the stress involved. The results obtained show that the structure or the components of this device are capable of lifting certain amount of load. Therefore,this detachable devise is easy to store.
