Garrison guns were heavy and awkward to move. To be transported, the barrel had to be taken off the carriage with the help of a tripod hoist or gun gin. The gin was equipped with a pulley system that made it possible for two men to lift the barrel. The barrel was then attached to a horse-drawn carriage known as a sling or devil cart. The gun gin was also used to hoist a barrel when the carriage had to be replaced.
