Stair Winch redo

So my stairs work great! But during a friends visit, the rope to raise them got caught between the pulley and the frame. So, new, bigger rope!
Which lead to looking at what would happen if the rope or pulleys failed while someone was sitting on the bench under the stairs.
New "Failsafe" system!
A hook at the end of the stairs to hook a chain onto when they are raised. 
And with the weight of the stairs on it.
Works well! Peace of mind.
