In many high-rise residential buildings or multi-storey warehouses, machinery, so called lifts, are used for the vertical transportation of people or weights between attitudinally distant places. Carriers used for lifts are steel ropes or sprocket chains, on which a cage or a counterbalance is hinged. Apparatus of all carriers, attached to the hinge of the cage or counterbalance, should be even. This can be hundred percently made only by hammer hinge. Fixed or springe hinge cannot be a perfect
