even a single pulley would help -
good graphic, Cheesy. While you were hunting that down, I drew this....

I know, I know...better than I thought. Might have to think about some studio work....

I'm kinda short (5'6") so I had the same problem with having to really reach to get to the bottom of the chest freezer. I don't have any problems just carrying the carbon, but I would always have a sore back after lifting one in or out of the chest freezer. So I built a frame on wheels that rolls over the freezer and added a cheap harbor freight winch...

I in my younger years I worked for UPS for 5 years loading outgoing trailers, 1200 packages per hour that weighed from 1lb. to 70lbs. I have had more training on the subject of proper lifting and handling of load than most. From my experience there is no way I can see to follow proper lifting techniques and place a full carboy in or remove a full carboy out of a chest freezer.
