Detail of the counterweight pulley for the powder hoist door.
A cable would have been attached to the door, run up to the pulley that's set into the ceiling, and then through the conduit to the hoist shaft where it was connected to a counterweight.
This would make the doors much easier to open. All the hoist doors at Battery Kinzie used this system.
