Abstract : An apparatus for balancing an asymmetric load of one or more large heavy objects such as missiles and the like including a rotatable horizontally oriented jack screw for moving a block with a lifting eye thereon in a lateral direction. A beam perpendicular to the jack screw holds a fixture to which one or more missiles are attached. Lateral movement of the block in response to rotation of the jack screw serves to balance the load during the hoisting and conveying operation regardless of the number and position of the missiles in the missile holding fixture.
