English term or phrase:come-along
"If by chance you should have to change this cylinder, we also have a lifting ear attached to the top of it so you can hook a come-along or a chain and lift this thing so you are not trying to man-handle it."
What does "come-along" mean here? is it used as a noun, not as a phrasal verb? is there any bad writing problem here?
